PROFTPD problem :( [Resolved]

Postby itzy » 31. December 2011 10:08

i was used Xampp before 1 month,it was really great :) i used CentOS 5 32bit..
last day my VPS got crashed(it was company problem,not mine)

so i've installed xampp again..i've faced this problem..i really dont know what to do..
then i reported to vps company, they said "same there was no problem with us"

snap :

opened the file (/opt/lampp/etc/proftpd.conf)
Code: Select all
# This is a basic ProFTPD configuration file (rename it to
# 'proftpd.conf' for actual use.  It establishes a single server
# and a single anonymous login.  It assumes that you have a user/group
# "nobody" and "ftp" for normal operation and anon.

ServerName                      "ProFTPD"
ServerType                      standalone
DefaultServer                   on

# Port 21 is the standard FTP port.
Port                            21
# Umask 022 is a good standard umask to prevent new dirs and files
# from being group and world writable.
Umask                           022

# To prevent DoS attacks, set the maximum number of child processes
# to 30.  If you need to allow more than 30 concurrent connections
# at once, simply increase this value.  Note that this ONLY works
# in standalone mode, in inetd mode you should use an inetd server
# that allows you to limit maximum number of processes per service
# (such as xinetd)
MaxInstances                    30

"/opt/lampp/etc/proftpd.conf" 45L, 1448C

Hi itzy

I note that MySQL has an issue also, so you probably have a few problems.

Let me ask you a couple of questions:

A. - When you say your VPS crashed, please tell me how that was remediated by the hosting company?

Did they A - 1. Load a clean image (new virtual server) ?

OR A - 2. Load a snapshot/backup of the running VPS from their recovery system?

B. - If they did A -2 (load snapshot) what did you do at that point?

(my first guess is that you unintentionally installed over your existing XAMMP/LAMPP install)

I guess I should ask you to say in your own words a more complete description of what happened. Including anything you did (beyond a clean installation of XAMPP) to bring things back.

I'm guessing this in an unmanaged VPS???

Just so you know for the future, LAMPP has a backup facility that allows recovering completely on the same 'platform' (OS + backup + new install of the same version of LAMPP == almost everything works again magically) ~ I know it works as I have tested it ~ :mrgreen:

Good Luck and Happy New Year
