    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
