Default Proftpd Help (incorrect login)

Hello,

I have been trying to set up a web server following the The Perfect Setup - Debian Etch (Debian 4.0) guide. I have managed to get most parts of the server working, but I cannot connect to the proftpd server with the account that I wish to connect with (I get a 530 error, login incorrect). My normal user account can connect to the server, so I am unsure what I did wrong with the other user.

I have tried several of the suggestions that I saw suggested with other similar problems, but to no avail. As things stand right now:

User: webguy
Group: ftpusers
shell: /bin/false

/bin/false is in /etc/shells


My proftpd.conf
Code:
#
# /etc/proftpd/proftpd.conf -- This is a basic ProFTPD configuration file.
# To really apply changes reload proftpd after modifications.
#

# Includes DSO modules
Include /etc/proftpd/modules.conf

# Set off to disable IPv6 support which is annoying on IPv4 only boxes.

I'm sure I just overlooked something (as I am rather new to the whole linux culture), but hopefully you can help!

I found that the directory the user had set as home did not exist. After creating the directory all was well. Guess I did just overlook something
