|If you see this error when running proftpd in debug mode:|
USER username (Login failed): Invalid shell: '/bin/false'it would likely mean that /bin/false is not listed in your /etc/shells file.
For proftpd, it shouldn't even be checking this. Ensure you've got:
RequireValidShell noset in your /etc/proftpd.conf file.
Else, manually add /bin/false to /etc/shells, but this isn't the best option.
