am setting up an FTP site on my server. I set one up and then I delted it.  Now when I go back in to create the FTP site I get this following message.

This site cannot be started because another site running on this computer is already using the IP address and TCP port values that you have specified for this site. Please change either the IP address or the TCP port values for this site.

I want to be able to host multiple websites and have multiple ftp sites.

You can't have multiple FTP sites without using either multiple ports or multiple IP Addresses.  Multiple web sites is easy because the HTTP 1.1 specification allows the use of Host Header files in IIS which permits multiple sites using one IP and port.  But HTTP is NOT FTP.

One thing you can do is to configure home directories for each user so that they can only access their directory - then you only have the 1 FTP server, servicing multiple sites (and your users can still use ftp to connect to www.theirdomain.com to connect to the FTP service (as it will be using DNS))

How do I get rid of the Message: This site cannot be started because another site running on this computer is already using the IP address and TCP port values that you have specified for this site. Please change either the IP address or the TCP port values for this site.

I have deleted all of the FTP folders. All I have is the website folder. I am trying to create a new ftp folder but I get the above error message.

Thanks,

If you have deleted all the FTP folders, restart the server or run IISReset
