Is soroushir listed in /etc/passwd?

What's in /usr/local/etc/proftpd.passwd and /usr/local/etc/proftpd.group?

no , soroushir is not in /etc/passwd

i create a user name=ftpbackup uid=1010
/etc/passwd has this line
ftpbackup:*:1010:1010:User &:/backup/soroush/:/bin/sh

content of /usr/local/etc/proftpd.passwd
content of /usr/local/etc/proftpd.group

when i install proftpd one step is
./contrib/ftpasswd --passwd --file=/usr/local/etc/proftpd.passwd --name=soroushir --uid=1010 --home=/backup/soroush/ --shell=/bin/sh
./contrib/ftpasswd --group --gid=1010 --name=root --member=soroushir --file=/usr/local/etc/proftpd.group
sorry for my bad English
