FTP service is not working/listening in Kloxo Server


In Kloxo ftp is running in xinetd. So first of all check this service is listening in port 21.

[root@server ~]# netstat -plant | grep xinetd      
tcp        0      0 0.0.0.0:25                  0.0.0.0:*                   LISTEN      3941/xinetd


Make sure the xinetd service is running in startup
[root@server ~]# chkconfig --list | grep xinetd
xinetd         0:off 1:off 2:off 3:off 4:off 5:off 6:off


If it is not running in startup, issue the following command.

[root@server ~]# chkconfig xinetd on
[root@server ~]# chkconfig --list | grep xinetd
xinetd         0:off 1:off 2:on 3:on 4:on 5:on 6:off


Restarting xinetd service will not help to restart ftp service. You have to follow the steps shown below to fix the ftp problems.

1. Login to Kloxo as Admin user.
2. Web - Mail - Database >> FTP Config


3. Just click the 'Update' button and check again.

[root@server ~]# netstat -plant | grep xinetd
tcp        0      0 0.0.0.0:21                  0.0.0.0:*                   LISTEN      3941/xinetd        
tcp        0      0 0.0.0.0:25                  0.0.0.0:*                   LISTEN      3941/xinetd

Thats it..
