    but when i launch it i got: Maybe it is not installed, or your module configuration is incorrect

    so i changed the path on module configuration to the path displayed /usr/libexec/webmin-1.690/proftpd

    hi
    i think that's a library
    my centos has
    path to config file : /etc/proftpd.conf
    path to executables : /usr/sbin/proftpd

    in the future go to system > software and search for say proftpd
    then list files and look for the executable location..

    The mistake you may be making is this. A Webmin module allows Webmin to control another piece of software. But it is not the software itself.

    In order for Webmin to control Proftpd, two things have to be in place. One is the Proftpd Webmin Module must be installed into Webmin. The other is that the Proftpd Server software program has to be installed into your operating system. IS IT?

    What makes you say that?

    ProFTPD Server in /usr/libexec/webmin-1.690/proftpd (1420 kB) under category Servers)

    is a Webmin module, not the actual ProFTPD Server software.

    but if you follow the thread carefully you would notice that alex had a successful software installation, just that the module config may have not been correct....

    Maybe 'worst community! ever' might be relevantt and such questioned answers won't be given in the future....

    I don't see anything in this thread that mentions a ProFTPD Server software installation. All I see is ProFTPD Server in /usr/libexec/webmin-1.690/proftpd (1420 kB) under category Servers) - and this is a Webmin module, not the software program.

    Exactly what makes you say that the Server software itself is installed? Show me!

    Hi,

    I finally succeeded :) after 3 week
    1. install proftpd module
    2. go to system > software
    3. Install a New Package
    4. check
    Package from YUM
    5. tape (to install EPEL)
    sudo rpm -Uvh http://download.fedoraproject.org/pub/epel/6/i386/epel-release-6-8.noarch.rpm
    6. tape (to install proftpd)
    sudo yum install proftpd
    7. click in Refresh Modules
    8. go Servers > ProFTPD Server (if you have a problem set config to
    path to config file : /etc/proftpd.conf
    path to executables : /usr/sbin/proftpd
    )


    should work now :) i'm noob so some setup are maybe not required
    unfortunately i didn't continue to configure webmin because parallel plesk launched a new panel 12 wish cost only 2.99 euro for dedicated and vps server
    I'm afraid to meet another problem and not get help I opted for the second solution
    thank you to all who try to help

    for expert who read and who have not taken the time to writing two lines to help
    shame on you

    You were repeatedly told that the ProFTPD server software program was likely not installed and that a Webmin module cannot control missing software programs.

    As I said, one of the most common Webmin mistakes is to think that installing Webmin modules also installs the software to be managed. It doesn't.

    Another even more significant mistake it to think that installing Webmin is a replacement for actually learning something about Unix-like operating systems. It isn't.
