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

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...

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
530 Authentication failed, sorry
Login failed.
Remote system type is UNIX.
Using binary mode to transfer files.

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