    ! I posted this same problem a week ago in WHM forum and got no replys. Am I the only one that ever gets emails about proftp failing? :)

    Hello All!

    I am having a field day deleteing hundreds of emails in the last 24 hours ever since I changed the ServerType to inetd. I had the ServerType setup as standalone, but my bos would not reboot, and would stall at proftpd startup.

    Here is what the emails said:

    Subject:
    proftpd on www.domain.com failed

    Body:
    proftpd failed @ Thu Sep 26 22:49:14 2002. A restart was attempted automagicly.


    when I check my logs this is all I get:

    Sep 26 22:49:14 proftpd: domain.com - Fatal: Socket operation on non-socket
    Sep 26 22:49:14 proftpd: domain.com - (Running from command line? Use `ServerType standalone' in config file!)
    Sep 26 22:49:14 proftpd: proftpd startup failed

    Why the heck is is proftp so hard to deal with?

    Any tips?:) :)
