ProFTP problem

Post by von »

After installing proftp on my rpi3 I can't connect to the pi. The ssh doesn't work (connection refused error), pihole doesn't work.
Currently I don't have any hdmi cable so can't tell what's going on. Anyone know what's the problem?

can you "ping" ip address of your RPi3 ?

So here is what happened after connecting to the monitor.
Tried reboot few times and still got same result. So I tried "systemctl reboot", "systemctl default" all same emergency mode. Then I tried "journalctl -xb" to what's causing this error and got this.

Code: Select all

vc_vchi_sm_init: failed to open VCHI service (-1)
[vc_sm_connected_init] failed to initialize shared memory service
and also I got failed mount error because I disconnected my drives. So I disabled auto mount from "/etc/fstab" and tried again and it worked. I've uninstalled the proftp and everythings back to the where it was.

TLDR; should I install samba instead of proftp?
