[Solved] Can't login to FTP when creating a new account. 530 incorrect

Postby mrkidgrave » Wed Jan 10, 2018 12:30 am

Whenever I create a new domain name and new ftp login information, I am unable to log into ftp.

I am using Filezilla to connect on my server. My server is running on vsftpd. I have already created multiple ftp accounts, double checked and even tripled checked the login info, and I keep getting a 530 login error. However, when I try to connect to ftp with accounts that were already created long ago, I am able to log into ftp without any problems. Please help! I am only having login issues with newly created accounts.

I solved this problem doing the following steps. I just don't know why it was necessary to have to edit a configuration file. By the way, I am using Debian Jessie. I no longer get the 530 error logins when I make new FTP accounts!

First, make a backup of your config file.

cp /etc/vsftpd.conf /etc/vsftpd.conf.back

Then edit vsftpd.conf file

nano /etc/vsftpd.conf

Then make the following change

pam_service_name=ftp

Lastly, save your changes and restart the ftp server.

service vsftpd restart


Return to “FTP Server”
