I made the mistake of removing ProFTPD and need to reinstall.

When I tried reinstalling the module, the install seems to run successfully but it doesn't come up.

Install notes from Webmin:

Downloading proftpd.wbm.gz (321 bytes) ..
Downloading http://download.webmin.com/download/modules/proftpd.wbm.gz (170.87 kB) ..
Received 1024 bytes (0 %)
Received 18 kB (10 %)
Received 35 kB (20 %)
Received 52 kB (30 %)

Received 120 kB (70 %)
Received 137 kB (80 %)
Received 154 kB (90 %)
Received 170.87 kB (100 %)
.. download complete.


Instead, I get the following error:

The ProFTPD server /usr/sbin/proftpd could not be found on your system. Maybe it is not installed, or your module configuration is incorrect.

I also tried rebooting the server.
If someone can tell me how to reinstall, it would be most appreciated.

I also tried installpkg from command line and I got Command not found.

Thanks in advance.

How did you remove proftpd?
Did you by any chance remove the proftpd package and not the webmin module?
In proftpd module config just check the paths.

Code:
pid_file=/var/run/proftpd.pid
proftpd_path=/usr/sbin/proftpd
proftpd_conf=/etc/proftpd.conf


Also refresh webmin modules.

If you have uninstall proftpd package do

Code:
slapt-get --add-keys
slapt-get -u
slapt-get -i proftpd

Greetings gerasimos_h:

Thanks for your help. I now have ProFTPD reinstalled.

To answer your question; I removed ProFTPD via Webmin module and chose delete option. And to further clarify; although I have fair working knowledge of Linux (Debian/Ubuntu) and Webmin, I admit that I am new to the Slackware environment.

I chose SMS to also have Slackware to learn without the multiple ISO confusion (LOL). Mind you, I researched and tried resolving this on my own before posting; unfortunately I wasn't getting anywhere.

Thanks again for your help! Wink
