Make sure the following is in your proftpd.conf file (usually /etc/proftpd.conf):
Code:
<Anonymous ~joe>
AnonRequirePassword on
User joe
Group users
RequireValidShell off
<Directory *>
<Limit WRITE>
AllowAll
</Limit>
</Directory>
</Anonymous>
The above is not the entire proftpd.conf file, just an example of a user's entry. This would allow access to an already existing user account named joe. Obviously, you should change it as necessary, but it's a start.

Hope it works for you.

Thanks, WindowBreaker. Does it mean that I need to create an entry for each FTP user?
