    not sure why you would want to connect to FTP using root, i would really recommend using SFTP or SCP

    you have to go /etc/ftpuser (or ftpusers) check it and inside remove the root . Then you will be able to login via ftp with root .
    but better do not do it... root access via ftp is a security risk i thing.

    Yes, it is a security risk, you want your root password encrypted via SSH2, which is about the same as a 128bit SSL cert.

    You should use a SFTP program, or just use SSH.
