Changed passwd
Modified /etc/passwd: webadmin:x:500:500::/var/www/html:/bin/false

Added to /etc/proftpd.conf:
DefaultRoot ~

chown webadmin /var/www/html

This is all it says in /log/messages:
FTP session opened.
PAM(webadmin): Authentication failure.
FTP session closed.

I know it is probably something simple I am forgetting. Any ideas?
Maybe this thread contains the solution:
