Help starting ProFTP

I’m getting this error when I try to start it.
Failed to start service :
Starting ftp server: proftpd - warning: unable to determine IP address of ‘

  • error: no valid servers configured
  • Fatal: error processing configuration file ‘/etc/proftpd/proftpd.conf’

I got it. I just changed my hostname from localhost to and added the srv record to my domain registrars DNS pointing to my main IP.

I’m glad you figured it out, thanks for posting your solution!
