It seems your server doesn't connect to the internet correctly. :( This will have to be fixed, or the plugin won't work.

 

Do you have the correct dns setting for your server? Can you try setting it to 8.8.8.8 (Google DNS)?

It was the router. Rebooted the router and now it is working. Damn it

Sorry for this  :-[

No problem. :) I'm glad you got it fixed. And there really was a little bug in the plugin, so I'm really glad you tried it out and made me stumble upon it. Have fun with the plugin and feel free to ask if there are any questions or problems.

One more question. How to configure the simple features Web server to be able to edit the proftpd configuration. Thank you

Normally you just install the webserver plugin and enable it. The proftpd plugin will detect if it is enabled and copies the necessary files to your webroot. On the proftpd settings page you should then have a config editor window at the bottom.

 

Be aware that the webserver plugin  fails to install correctly at the moment. Check this post in the simplefeatures thread for a manual fix. If it still doesn't work you'll have to post a full syslog again.

Are you sure it is the internal FTP that is running? Is the proftpd plugin icon now present in Settings? Do you get the config editor window on the plugins settings page? If not and if you have not given up by now please post a full syslog. :)

i tried rebooting the server but didn't help. i also tried stopping and starting the proftp, didn't help neither.

All logs and pictures indicate proftpd is successfully installed and running fine. Internal FTP should be disabled then. Why are you sure it is running? To do the final check please have a look at /etc/inetd.conf. Look for this lines:

 

# Very Secure File Transfer Protocol (FTP) server.
#ftp     stream  tcp     nowait  root    /usr/sbin/tcpd  vsftpd

 

If the second line has a comment sign in the beginning the internal ftpserver is disabled and not running.

 

If you do a ps -A you should get a list of all running processes. There should be no other ftpserver besides proftpd running. inetd running is normal as this still handles your telnet connection.

would you please tell me where can i find /etc/inetd.conf  ;D

In shell (telnet or directly at the server) you enter: cat /etc/inetd.conf

or: vi /etc/inetd.conf

To leave vi type :q

I think I know now why you think the internal server is still running. The "FTP Server" icon in Settings is not removed by my plugin. It is no indication that the internal one is still running.  :)

 

Edit:

That is misleading however, so I'll change the next version of the plugin to remove it.

yah that's why.

 

when i ran ps -A i didnt find other than proftpd

 

and when i ran cat /etc/inetd.conf i have

 

# Very Secure File Transfer Protocol (FTP) server.
#ftp     stream  tcp     nowait  root    /usr/sbin/tcpd  vsftpd

 

sorry but what did you mean by the comment sign?

In bash and many config files the # at the start of a line will make that line a comment. So

 

do something

 

would mean a real command, while

 

#do something

 

will be a comment which will not be executed. Not all programming languages use a #. There are other comment symbols as well.

 

Version 0.5b of my plugin is online. Please use the update function on the plugin page to update. After a reboot of your server the "FTP Server" icon will be gone.

I just installed your plugin for testing purposes, but plan on opening it up to the world later.  First I need to get it working.  It installs fine, but doesn't seem to start (unless there is a bug on the display of the status screen.  Because when I point filezilla to 192.168.1.106 and login with newly created ftpuser, I get

 

Status:	Connecting to 192.168.1.106:21...
Status:	Connection attempt failed with "ECONNREFUSED - Connection refused by server".
Error:	Could not connect to server

It doesn't matter if I have a password or not for the ftpuser.

 

Here is what the ProFTPd status screen looks like after I start the service and enable the FTP daemon:

ProFTPD
Status: STOPPED
Package/Plugin 	Local Version 	Online Version
ProFTPD Package 	UNKNOWN 	v1.3.5rc2
ProFTPD Plugin 	v0.5c 	v0.5c

 

Syslog reports the following from when I start proftpd, but there is no indication that filezilla tried to login:

May 27 06:50:59 Server1 sudo:     root : TTY=unknown ; PWD=/ ; USER=root ; COMMAND=/usr/local/sbin/proftpd -c /etc/proftpd.conf

The local version of the proftpd package should be the same as online. The unknown indicates something went wrong when downloading the package. Please click on update package. There should be a button under updates.

 

Please make sure you have Enable ProFTP Daemon on the right side set to Yes. Then please try to reboot your server. If it it still doesn't show the same version as online please check /boot/config/plugins/proftpd/ if there are proftpd-1.3.5rc2.tgz and proftpd-1.3.5rc-sql.tgz files and what their size is, then post again.

 

To start proftpd from commandline please use the following command and post the output if it doesn't work:

/etc/rc.d/rc.proftpd start

 

The plugin needs to show RUNNING as status. Only then we'll be able to check if the user/s are setup correctly.

Rebooting the server gives us the same result.  Still unknown.

till SlrG comes back you may try this

 

remove the plugin file and proftpd folder

reboot

but the plugin file back in the plugins folder

reboot your router ! i know it sounds weird

after your router gets on-line, then reboot the server to get the plugin installed.

 

that's how it worked with me

That didn't help, but I guess I should try and eliminate the other things could interfere.  Following dgaschk disable addons process, I went to a stock go file and got rid of the plugins and extra directories.

 

http://lime-technology.com/forum/index.php?action=profile;u=12399

 

I rebooted and reinstalled.  But still get Unknown, see attached screenshot.  Looks like I haven't cleaned out simplefeatures completely either.

The error saying simplefeatures is caused by my plugin. It checks for the simplefeatures webserver config to use the webserver for the config editor. As you have removed simplefeatures it doesn't find the file. Of course this has to be rewritten in a way that it throws no error when nothing is found.

 

Now back to the unknown problem. Please check if you have the file /etc/rc.d/rc.proftpd

Then in shell call: /etc/rc.d/rc.proftpd getver app local

This is what is called by the web page to retrieve the local app version. If you don't have

this file or it fails we know a little bit more where the problem is.
