Webmin doesn't see ProFTPD?

Post by oscillik »

Hi all,

I can't seem to get Webmin to work with ProFTPD — when clicking on the ProFTPD Server module, it just says "The program /usr/sbin/proftpd does not appear to be the ProFTPD server. Maybe it is not installed, or your module configuration is incorrect. Output from the command /usr/sbin/proftpd -v was : <blank>"

Is there any way to get this working? Thanks

Hi,

you would need to install ProFTP from dietpi-software catalogue before.

So even though it was installed at the initial setup, I would have to install it again?

Edit: I've just checked — it's already marked as installed in dietpi-software…

Webmin is not going to install anything in addition. It will provide the web Frontend only. Thinks like Samba or ProFTP would need to be installed individualy.

To check if ProFTP is running pls do following

Code: Select all

systemctl status proftpd.service

I'm not talking about Webmin installing anything, I'm talking about dietpi-software — ProFTPD is already installed and running.

and proftpd -v doesn't give anything ??

Code: Select all

root@DietPiVM1:~# proftpd -v

probably your FTP installation did not work correctly. Maybe you can try to reinstall.

I don't think you understand — ProFTPD is working and running. I am able to connect to the server and download/upload files. Webmin isn't working to adminster it though.

I understood you already. Your problem is that Webmin is not detecting your ProFTP installation and this needs to be found out why. As well you stated on your first post that proftpd -v dosn't give anything back. But usually it should state the ProFTP version. So there might be something wrong on ProFTP
