proftpd don't start - Install not create /opt/csw/etc/proftpd.conf (not included in installed package)


I have a fresh virtualmin install in a Solaris 10 servers.

Proftpd don't start because the /opt/csw/etc/proftpd.conf is not created.

I look the install script and found that :

cp /opt/csw/etc/proftpd.conf.CSW /opt/csw/etc/proftpd.conf

but opt/csw/etc/proftpd.conf.CSW looks not included in the instaled package then the copy fails.

Sorry my english


Closed (fixed)


Looks like the path to the proftpd config file has changed in the latest CSW packages.

The fix for this is to copy /etc/opt/csw/proftpd/proftpd.conf.CSW to /etc/opt/csw/proftpd/proftpd.conf , then edit /etc/webmin/proftpd/config and change the config file path to /etc/opt/csw/proftpd/proftpd.conf .

I have fixed the Virtualmin solaris install to do this.

Hi Jamie

The bug still in the script from

I installed a new server with a new script and have the same issue.

I fixed it by hand.



Oops, I forgot to update the GPL solaris installer .. fixed now.
