Do you have user 'ftp' in your system?

Have you checked your proftpd.log file? Mine exists at: /var/log/proftpd.log

But your logs appear to be in: /home/ftp

So anyway, find that and see what it says from the last error, post it here if you are unsure.

Cool

One thing you can also check for would be this,
See if you have an /etc/ftpusers or /etc/ftpaccess file and make sure you have the user ftp commented out like:

#ftp

Exclamation make sure the user is not expired

I got today 530 error on proftpd running on Solaris. The problem was that user had expired and soution was that he/she had to get a new expiration date.
