    The psa-proftpd package contains the /usr/bin/ftptop binary ("display running status on proftpd server connections"), but it doesn't work on our CentOS servers:

    Code:
    # ftptop
    ftptop: no curses or ncurses library on this system
    The output says the (n)curses library is not available, but the ncurses package is installed on our servers. Please fix this.

    This is a Plesk bug. Running ldd /usr/bin/ftpwho gives:
    Code:
    ]# ldd /usr/bin/ftpwho
            libcrypt.so.1 => /lib/libcrypt.so.1 (0x00d4c000)
            libc.so.6 => /lib/tls/libc.so.6 (0x00bb8000)
            /lib/ld-linux.so.2 (0x00b9e000)
    
    Apparently Parrallels did not compile ftpwho, a part of proftpd, against ncurses. You might be able to shoehorn a better built rpm of proftpd into your system, but it would certainly be easier if Parrallels got their act together. And, yes, the blame lies with them:
    Code:
    ]# rpm -qa --qf "%{packager} - %{name} %{version} - %{arch}\n" | grep proftpd
    Parallels <info@parallels.com> - psa-proftpd 1.3.1 - i586
    Parallels <info@parallels.com> - psa-proftpd-xinetd 1.3.1 - i586

    Thank you for report.
    The problem is confirmed and will be fixed in Plesk 8.6.1
