    Unfortunately it still exists.

    I installed Debian 3.1 (Perfect Setup Howto) and ISPconfig yesterday on a local server from zero - Result: FTP online, connection with client and WebFTP possible
    I installed the same today on my production server (again), where I start with a minimal Debian 3.1 Image and continue then too with Perfect Setup Howto - Result: FTP offline, connection with client possible, with WebFTP: "Could not connect to localhost."

    You already have
    SocketBindTight on
    in your /etc/proftpd.conf, right?
    Can you add this:
            DefaultRoot             ~
            AllowOverwrite          on
            Umask                   002
    right before
    Include /etc/proftpd_ispconfig.conf
    and restart ProFTPd?

    Thanks, but:

    I added the lines, I stopped proftpd (netstat showed no more ftp running), then I restarted ISPconfig_server which itself started proftpd (netstat now showed ftp listening on both: domain and localhost) ...
    but WebFTP still could not connect to localhost *sigh*

    Do you see any error messages in the log files when you try to connect with Web-FTP?

    I managed to stolve my similar problem by adding this directive to my proftpd.conf or proftpd_ispconfig.conf file (in the server section)

    Bind localhost
