Thank you for your reply, you pointed me in the right direction. The entry in my proftpd.conf has the default directory to point to ~/FTP which was owned by root, therefore causing the login to fail due to a permissions issue.
Edit: ok so I thought it was fixed by the problem persists. When I check the logs I'm noticing all the users have the uid=0 and some are able to login while others aren't. I even enabled RootLogin just for testing and it still didn't work. Suggestions?
Final edit: I did some more digging around and it looks like I was right in the first place, as it only applied to a certain user. As I mentioned before, I still noticed all the users are trying to login with the uid=0. What's that about?
