Cannot login to Vesta FTP account

September 13, 2014 5.8k views


since I'm not really tech savvy considering ssh codes, I wanted to ask if someone of you could help me please.

I installed vesta on a digitalocean vps, created a domain + an additional ftp user. But when I want to connect to the FTP server with FileZilla, I always get "530 Login incorrect."

Does somebody have a solution? Would really help me out.

  • The logs might give us a better idea of what's going on here? Is there anything out of the ordinary in /var/log/auth.log ?

Had the same issue. In my case I solved it by adding in DO DNS a Cname record ftp to the domain url

I have same problem with VESTA Panel
When login with FTP, it's show this message:

Command: PASS **************
Response: 230 Login successful.
Command: OPTS UTF8 ON
Response: 200 Always in UTF8 mode.

and I cant login FTP or see any file on it.
