ProFTPd Error: no valid servers configured

I was struggling to get this working in one of the server while starting ProFTPd service. Even re-installing it didn’t resolve the issue.


Following are the lines shown in log file:


Checking syntax of configuration file
– warning: unable to determine IP address of ‘example.com′
error: no valid servers configured
– Fatal: error processing configuration file ‘/etc/proftpd.conf’



Finally I got it resolved and back on the track by adding Domain to IP resolution in hosts file at:  /etc/hosts

Adding following lines resolved this issue:

<ServerIP>                   Hostname                Hostname.Domain


i.e.                 blog                      muhammadattique.com

Then I tried to start ProFTPd service again, Wow.. this time it started.
