    Hello Everyone,

            I have been using webmin / virtualmin for quite sometime and this is the first time I have run into this. When i try adding a site occaisionally I will failed to create virtual server, something pertain to proftp already having a site with this name assigned to the ip address. Then I go to the commandline to check what proFTP is balking about and proFTP is not even running.

    So I try and start proFTP and I get the following:

    * Starting ftp server proftpd                                                                         /etc/init.d/proftpd: line 88: 30091 Illegal instruction     start-stop-daemon -start -quiet -pidfile "$PIDFILE" -oknodo -exec $DAEMON - $OPTIONS

    Now the particulars about my system are

    Ubuntu 10.04.4 LTS
    Webmin 1.590
    Virtualmin 3.93 released
    Usermin 1.510 released

    This is on a VM by the way.

    I have no clue how to fix this I have been searching for a month for a fix.

    Thanks,
