I have a fresh install of VSFTPd and PAM setup,

Account #1 connects i can read and write with www-data:customgroup files to
Account #2 cannot connect at all. Provides a 530 login incorrect

I am pretty new to this setup but here is some information about the setup. passwd file is like so
passwords are not in plain text but not in md5
my pam config is configured like so
auth required pam_pwdfile.so pwdfile /etc/vsftpd/passwd
account required pam_permit.so

I have figured out that the problem was turns out the VSFTP.config wasn't pointing to the right PAM config file. Now I have a error code 500 error opening per-user config file.
I use htaccess to make the passwd file and i believe that it is being pointed to properly. The thing i am not sure of is what to set the permissions on the passwd file.
