FTP Connection Refused


I’ve just fresh install virtualmin on my server. And I’ve set everything up smoothly, until I get connection refused.

I’ve added webftp server via edit users and make sure the proftpd service is started. I’ve got no clue what’s going on.
And then when I get to my server and put this command :
netstat -tulpn | grep :21


netstat -a | grep ftp

There are no ftp service listed as running, and then I go to webmin try to look for the service it shows that the proftpd is started.

Can someone explain to me what is going on?

Thank you for your time.

Same problem here over a fresh install on debian. No firewall installed and the ftp get error even in localhost login

ftp> localhost
ftp> open
(to) localhost
ftp: connect to address ::1: Connection refused
ftp: connect: Connection refused


sudo apt-get purge proftpd-basic

And reinstall

sudo apt-get install proftpd

Launch proftpd: service proftpd restart

thank you worked for me too
