I am unable to get proftpd to work. I followed the instructions at https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-set-up-proftpd-on-ubuntu-12-04
When I try to start or restart the service for proftpd I get " <pre>
sudo: unable to resolve host wptest start: unrecognized service
</pre>. Following “tail /var/log/proftpd/proftpd.log” shows below: <pre>
