#StackBounty: #linux #ftp #service #proftpd #ubuntu-20.04 Strange ProFTPD behaviour, seems duplicate installation

Bounty: 50

I have a strange problema with a fresh install of ProFTPD on Ubuntu 20 LTS.
I noticed that after changing some option on the configuration files, when I run services proftpd restart the modifications does not apply, only if I restart the system the changes will make effects.

So I try to sop the service with services proftpd stop but I can keep connecting with the ftp client. So there is something weird here. Can you help me on what to verify?

some output

root@b205d:~# which proftpd
/usr/sbin/proftpd
root@b205d:~# whereis proftpd
proftpd: /usr/sbin/proftpd /usr/lib/proftpd /etc/proftpd /usr/share/proftpd /usr/share/man/man8/proftpd.8.gz
