ftp not running on reboot until I restart the service..

  • I set up and enabled ftp but on every reboot its set to enabled: green, running: red and not functional.
    I have to manually disable and re-enable ftp.
    when I first do that, I get errors like: https://pastebin.com/ag2KaKNk



    then I have to retry in order to get it running, and then it actually works..
    Until I reboot I have the same issue again.


    how do I fix this?

  • I am facing the same problem of FTP not running after reboot or once the server started up after shutdown.


    I downloaded OMV 5.0.5 from https://sourceforge.net/projects/openmediavault/files/5.0.5/
    Now I notice that my OMV version is 5.2.1-1 (Usul) on System Info in OMV web GUI. (please see attached image)

    The question is: Which is my current version of OMV? (5.0.5 or 5.2.1-1?) My OMV automatically updated to 5.2.1-1 through Web GUI? (sorry that I am asking a stupid question but it is really a question)

  • dear all,
    same issue here... I have to manually disable and re-enable ftp after any reboot (version omv 5.2.1-1)

    error I got from log ftp:
