    After upgrade from plesk8 proftpd disappeared from server:

    Components Manager gives me that ftp is installed:

    psa-proftpd 1.3.1-cos5.build92091016.19

    but ftp server is not started and when i try to start with /usr/sbin/proftpd it responds:

    - warning: unable to determine IP address of '**************'
    - error: no valid servers configured
    - Fatal: error processing configuration file '/etc/proftpd.conf'

    I resolved:

    in /etc/hosts i added this line: <whatever hostname returned goes here>

    where <whatever hostname returned goes here> is the result of hostname command.

    I don't know why is necessary in this server and not in another server with plesk 9.2.3.
