Angry pure-ftp with PAM auth. 530 Erron on Debian


I have pure-ftpd running. PAM is enabled cat /etc/pure-ftpd/auth/70pam -> yes.

This system was setup by someone else, I am just trying to add more users to allow for ftp access. There are several old users that can connect to the machine, but new users can't connect.

i add users via

Code:
pure-pw useradd uname -f /etc/pure-ftpd/pureftpd.passwd -u uname -g uname -d /home/uname
update the db and restart the daemon.

the user is present when I list the db pure-pw list and also the user is present in the system /etc/passwd /etc/shadow. The passwords are the same as well. however, there are noone of the old users listed that can connect to the system.

When i try and log in this is what I get...

Code:
ftp localhost
Connected to localhost.
220---------- Welcome to Pure-FTPd [privsep] [TLS] ----------
220-You are user number 1 of 50 allowed.
220-Local time is now 16:31. Server port: 21.
220-This is a private system - No anonymous login
220 You will be disconnected after 15 minutes of inactivity.
Name (localhost:root): uname
331 User uname OK. Password required
Password:
530 Authentication failed, sorry
Login failed.
Remote system type is UNIX.
Using binary mode to transfer files.
ftp>

can anyone give me some input on how to resolve this.
thanks,
dan
