Thanks, that did it. I haven't seen the whole User & Email tab with its button "New". Shame on me!

In you passwd file, seems like only anonymous FTP users are created (with no password). Do you really have created normal users? Check twice.

Also a useful notice: You can only have ONE user as administrator per domain (tick the administrator box when creating the user). This user is the root user for this domain -- meaning that when logging to the FTP server it will have access for everything in there. If you login as a plain user to your FTP, you will only have access to your personal folder -- not the root folder of the site, so if you upload content it will not be visible from but from
Thanks I've tab the "Administrator" on and I saw what it does. When log in as that user, and then try to make a new user with the administrator box filled, it say's the administrator is already created. Thanks!
