I have a server running Ubuntu 11.04 Server and I have installed vsftpd (FTP). I am trying to get vsftpd to run on startup, but can't seem to configure it right.

There is already an upstart vsftpd file in /etc/init.d

Thanks, that solved my problem. – MichaelH Oct 22 '11 at 8:48

The upstart config needs to be in /etc/init not /etc/init.d
