vsftpd - not running?

New installation as of today. I setup a site and installed the vsftpd package.

If I try to do /etc/init.d/vsftpd start it doesn't start but there are no errors. And /var/log/vsftpd.log has nothing, syslog doesn't show up with anything and neither does /var/log/messages. I'm just not sure why it doesn't run.
What resolved this issue for me was adding the following line to /etc/vsftpd.conf


It seems that needs to be added to most 64-bit servers.
