    user/group settings on /etc/proftpd , files within, and /etc/proftpd.conf are probably out of whack.

    Make sure the directory is:

    drw-r-s--- 2 root proftpd 4096 Apr 2 15:13 proftpd/


    That's almost always the cause.....
    Individual config files within should be :

    -rw-r----- 1 root proftpd 128 Mar 28 12:21 user
    -rw-r----- 1 root proftpd 124 Mar 28 12:21 user
    -rw-r----- 1 root proftpd 107 Mar 28 12:21 user

    When corrected restart proftpd.
