ProFTPD login problems

I pacman'd ProFTPD and configured it with Webmin for a virtual server.  When I try to log in to the server it connects and accepts the username, but rejects the password I give.  I know that the password I've entered is correct.  Is there something I need to add to the configuration file to allow me to log in to the server as a local user, or something?

Re: ProFTPD login problems

Does ProFTPd work with virtual users? If not (and I think it doesn't)  you have to add every user you want to have access to the FTPd:

useradd -s /bin/false -g ftpgroup -d /ftphomedir -p password user

'-s /bin/false' means the user gets no shell, so he can't login to the box (except through FTP).
'-d /ftphomedir' should point to the FTP's rootdirectory, the directory users log into.
'-g ftpgroup' is the group FTP-users are in (if any).

A train station is where a train stops.
On my desk I have a workstation.
