Ok I changed my FTP port number in ProFTPD.conf.

How can I change the "Service Status" port for ftpd?

ProFTPD is running and I can log in but the "Service Status" page is showing:
"ftpd failed [RED LIGHT]"

Any help would be great.

I think you need to edit the /etc/chkserv.d/proftpd file and change the port the chkservd monitors. then restart chkservd

Thanks Mickalo!

That did it.
I did make the change to /etc/chkserv.d/proftpd but forgot to restart it, Daaa!
That was a hour lost over forgetting something that simple.

Just incase someone else has the same problem, don't forget to:
/etc/init.d/chkservd restart
after you make the change. LOL

Thanks again
John
