Default ftp authentication fails

I have been using ISPConfig for a while and I have had a number of working ftp accounts pointing at various sites.

The accounts were still working yesterday but today for some reason they stopped authenticating. I get a "530 Login authentication failed" message using saved account details that were working fine yesterday and if I use ISPConfig to setup a brand new user those details get the same error message.

The only thing I have done involving user accounts since yesterday is added an IP to mysql to allow a user to administer a couple of databases remotely.

Can this affect the ftp accounts?
Is there something I can try to get them working again? I definitely have the right connection details.

It looks as though the users are still being found but their passwords are being rejected...despite being correct:

Command: USER <myuser>
Response: 331 User <myuser> OK. Password required
Command: PASS ******
Response: 530 Login authentication failed

Did you modify your firewall?
Did you try both active and passive transfers in your FTP client?

I didn't modify anything and the settings for my ftp client are exactly the same as when they were working. It's set to automatically try both types (I use filezilla).

I had working ftp accounts, modified mysql to allow remote access, started filezilla again and clicked on the same set of details and now it denies the password. I didn't change the firewall at all.

Enable verbose logging in pure-ftpd and then check the log for errors:

It finds the server and accepts the username so I'm assuming the firewall is letting it through, it's just the password it rejects.

Hmm, my syslog isn't where that link thought it would be. I'll have to find it first :P
I use CentOS not Debian.
