giving users and group permission on proftp

hi! can anyone please tell me howto configure proftp so I can allow other people to access the ftp using their username and password.
I already has it running, but when I type the ip address for it, it asks for the username and password to login.
for example, I want to give access to 50 people; do I have to edit proftpd.conf and add the username of each user.
sincerely, clint
