Can connect via SFTP but not FTP?

Currently running Mint 14.
Changed/set up permissions using the following method:
sudo usermod -a -G www-data <some_user>
sudo chgrp -R www-data /var/www
sudo chmod -R g+w /var/www

sudo find /var/www -type d -exec chmod 2775 {} \;
sudo find /var/www -type f -exec chmod ug+rw {} \;
EDIT: Fixed. Config file was wonky.

Are you using vsftpd?
What is the error you getting while connecting through ftp?
Is it 530:login incorrect or 500: not change the directory or anything else?
Please share complete information.
