Proftpd won't accept connections

I have installed and started proftp without any errors, however, it keeps complaining abut something when I try to connect.

This is what im using, adding a new user account

adduser --shell /var/www/test --ingroup users testuser

This is what my proftpd.conf look like:

# This is a basic ProFTPD configuration file (rename it to
# 'proftpd.conf' for actual use.  It establishes a single server
# and a single anonymous login.  It assumes that you have a user/group
# "nobody/nogroup" and "ftp" for normal operation and anon.

This doesn't help you much maybe, but its what i get when trying to connect to it:

[R] Connecting to 192.168.0.*** -> IP=192.168.0.*** PORT=21
[R] Connected to 192.168.0.***
[R] 220 ProFTPD 1.2.9 Server (Test FTP 0001) [linux-server]
[R] USER testuser
[R] 331 Password required for testuser.
[R] PASS (hidden)
[R] 530 Login incorrect.
[R] Connection failed

I know i have typed the right password, at least it is the same as i wrote in as unixpassword for adduser
