    Hi!

    We ran into a strange issue: cPanel (11.34.1.7) generates a wildcard VirtualHost for ProFTPD and it causes ProFTPD cannot start.

    So if we have

    Code:
    <VirtualHost *>
    ServerName bla
    # ...
    </VirtualHost>
    
    ProFTPD says:

    Code:
    Fatal: <VirtualHost>: error resolving '*': No such file or directory on line 243 of '/etc/proftpd.conf'
    Can anyone help me what can be happened and how we can resolve it? It happens every time when we create new account.

    Not sure if this is helpful or not, but you might try switching to Pure-FTPD and then switch back:
    WHM » Service Configuration » FTP Server Selection
