ProFTPD 1.2.10 Standalone - Unable to login with non-anonymous account


Hello,

I've been trying to get an ftp server working since 8 o clock this morning (7 hours ago) without much success. I've compiled ProFTPD 1.2.10 from source according to the awesome guide posted here. My box is running Debian 3.1 kernel version 2.4.27-2-386. Anonymous accounts work fine. When I try to login with my user account, proftpd spits out this debug info:
Code:
ProFTPD 1.2.10 (stable) (built Fri Oct 14 15:53:33 EDT 2005) standalone mode STARTUP

FTP session closed.
I noticed this: USER dalesan (Login failed): Invalid shell: from above and promptly changed my proftpd.conf file to use the directive "RequireValidShell off" and restarted proftpd. (The above is actually the debug info after doing so)

If anyone has any suggestions as to what I can do to fix this, I would be eternally grateful.

Thanks.

I got it working, yay!

I just did a useradd and created new accounts and everything worked.
