    ./configure --sbinddir=/usr/sbin
    make
    make install

    after this i tried to connect to my localhost but it was asking for UName and Password.

    [root@localhost ~]# ftp localhost
    Connected to localhost.localdomain.
    220 FTP Server ready.

    For login to your website through ftp you have to create a user and you must have to specify that usergroup in your /etc/proftpd.conf file. Initially i missed that to specify a usergroup in my proftpd.conf file. After specifying a group there you can login as a user which belongs to that group.

    now have look of m,y proftpd.conf file and pay special attention on underlined and bold font .. you need to specify a usergroup .

    AFAIK you cant connect to FTP as root, try adding a user and the login to FTP, that should work fine.
