proFTPd keeps randomly killed on Ubuntu 14.04

Have problem today where my ftp server keeps randomly killed, on my proftpd log file :


2015-04-23 17:16:41,458 dc.server.mygms.net proftpd[23769] 127.0.0.1: ProFTPD killed (signal 15)
2015-04-23 17:16:41,462 dc.server.mygms.net proftpd[23769] 127.0.0.1: ProFTPD 1.3.5rc3 standalone mode SHUTDOWN

According to Launchpad bugs report #1246245 there’s currently a bug, the solution is to change your /etc/init.d/proftpd

<span style="color: #008000;">start-stop-daemon --stop --signal $SIGNAL --quiet --pidfile "$PIDFILE" </span>
to this
<span style="color: #008000;"><em>start-stop-daemon --stop --signal $SIGNAL <span style="color: #ff0000;">--retry 1</span> --quiet --pidfile "$PIDFILE"</em><span style="color: #000000;">
