Error in the new installation. Installed virtualmin in ubuntu 16.04 LTS
after successful installation , if starting proftpd getting the below error, please help to resolve the same. reinstalled and tried many times
Failed to start service :
Starting proftpd (via systemctl): proftpd.serviceJob for proftpd.service failed because the control process exited with error code. See “systemctl status proftpd.service” and “journalctl -xe” for details.
Thank you for your reply, i’m solved the issue by using the below comment , its from this thread , thanks for your support.
Instead of commenting out the TLS lines just add at top of the file LoadModule mod_tls.c and enjoy the benefits of SFTP.
The full /etc/proftpd/conf.d/virtualmin.conf file on Ubuntu 16.04 TLS will looks like bellow:
VirtualHost for SFTP (FTP over SSH) port
Configure the server to listen on 2222 (openssh owns 22)
Configure the RSA and ECDSA host keys, using the same host key
files that OpenSSH uses.
Configure the file used for comparing authorized public keys of users.
More then FTP max logins, as there are more ways to authenticate
I hope this will help.
Hari, that advice is correct, but you can also fix it with this command:
# virtualmin config-system --include ProFTPd
