proftpd is a ftp server that runs in the background so it is normal that you do not see anything!

Have you set up the configuration file correctly for proftpd? Search elsewhere on this site for how to.

also you should start and stop servers using the scripts in /etc/init.d

is there somewhere a list of commands for proftpd. the only things i know how to do are start it 'proftpd' and see how long it's been running/who's on it with 'ftpwho'

i also dont know how to edit my .conf files to configure the server

Learn to use sysvinit... rc-update add proftpd default && /etc/init.d/proftpd restart
