Not entirely sure if it's Cpanel related, but a little help on this problem would be appreciated :)

All accounts setup on the shared IP are inaccessible thru' FTP - no matter for which account you try, and using the correct user & pass, it displays incorrect login messages.

Any ideas?

I had a similar problem a while ago. Check the permissions and ownership of /etc/proftpd. Should be as follows:

[email protected] [~]# ls -ld /etc/proftpd
drw-r-s--- 2 root proftpd 4096 Mar 31 04:38 /etc/proftpd/

It has to belong to the &proftpd& group. I had a problem on two servers not long ago. Apparently for some reason after the cpanel update the group was changed to root.
