When trying to start proftpd with webmin I get the following error message: Failed to start FTP server :
* Starting ftp server proftpd
- mod_dso/0.4: module 'mod_ctrls_admin.c' already loaded
- Fatal: LoadModule: error loading module 'mod_ctrls_admin.c': Operation not permitted on line 7 of '/etc/proftpd/proftpd.conf'
So I tried to start it using the terminal on my server machine and I get the same message . I looked at line 7 in the config file and I see the instruction to Load the module 'mod_ctrls_admin.c'. Unhappily I don't know what to do about it. I'm new to webmin and proftpd but I am a long time linux user. My server is Linux Mint 9 Isadora Help will be greatly appreciated.
I found the answer on the proftpd forum. I had duplicate LoadModule directives in the modules.conf and in the proftpd.conf file. I commented out the ones on the proftpd.conf file and the server started without issue.
