Default proftpd woes

I am attempting to configure proftpd on RedHat Linux. Anonymous ftp works but anyone with a real login gets 530: Login incorrect.

This is the output of my netstat -tap:
Active Internet connections (servers and established)
Proto Recv-Q Send-Q Local Address Foreign Address State PID/Program name
tcp 0 0 localhost.localdom:2314 *:* LISTEN 9247/xinetd
tcp 0 0 *:submission *:* LISTEN 468/sendmail: accep
tcp 0 0 *:sunrpc *:* LISTEN 415/portmap
tcp 0 0 *:ftp *:* LISTEN 9247/xinetd
tcp 0 0 lus26.volvocf.co:domain *:* LISTEN 6319/named
tcp 0 0 localhost.locald:domain *:* LISTEN 6319/named
tcp 0 0 *:ssh *:* LISTEN 9030/sshd
tcp 0 0 *:smtp *:* LISTEN 468/sendmail: accep
tcp 0 0 localhost.localdom:rndc *:* LISTEN 6319/named
tcp 0 1 lus26.volvocf.com:2359 SYN_SENT 9271/k86I3Cx6017776

I have tried passive and active ftp. I cannot even log on using ftp locally as a valid user. I am new to Linux but well versed in Solaris. Can someone point me in the right direction?

What format for username are you using? Are you trying a system user, or a ISPConfig user? If ISPConfig user, I *think* you want to be using web1_username as the username format. I don't use ISPConfig, however, so I can't be sure. Is PROFTP logging? What do the logs say?
