I freshly unpacked froxolor on my server, set it up correctly (at least no errors appeared, all checks were green). Afterwards i configured the FTP with ProFTPd as required (at least for Ubuntu 16.04, while Ubuntu 18.04 is running on the server).
ProFTPd is running on the server:
# systemctl status proftpd.service
● proftpd.service - LSB: Starts ProFTPD daemon
Loaded: loaded (/etc/init.d/proftpd; generated)

I created a user, assigned an ftp account to him, but cannot log in, neither as that user nor as root (using the systems root users password). When logging on to the FTP, the client states:
Status: Connecting to 184.108.40.206:21...
Status: Connection established, waiting for welcome message...
Response: 220 ProFTPD 1.3.5e Server (websts.xyz.de FTP Server) [::ffff:220.127.116.11]

and the the proftpd log (/var/log/proftpd/proftpd.log) on the server shows:
2019-05-01 01:27:41,951 aServer proftpd aServer (ns3033680.ip-91-121-116.eu[18.104.22.168]): FTP session opened.

So after some reading, i double checked that the correct credentials for the mysql database are in the froxlor config (which is /var/www/html/lib/userdata.inc.php ?). And they are, tested by manually connecting to the mysql database on my server as froxlor user:
# mysql -u froxlor -p -h localhost
Welcome to the MySQL monitor. Commands end with ; or \g.
Your MySQL connection id is 3411

So this works, the credentials from the config work. I can't figure out what the problem with the connection is and why my froxlor user cannot connect to the ftp.

Anything else i should provide so that support is easier?
/var/log/syslog and /var/log/authlog show up nothing for the timestamps of failed ftp connection attempts.
What did i miss?
