Cant log into FTP after automatically installing LAMP

February 24, 2015 3.5k views

Hello, I just ordered another droplet and selected option to install LAMP automatically. All of this seems to be done but however I’m unable to log in through FTP.

I did log in through SSH once to change the password, but haven’t done anything else.

We do not provide any images with a pre-installed FTP service as FTP is inherently insecure. All droplets do provide an SFTP service which should be accessible via any SFTP client with your root credentials once you have replaced your temporary password.

Basically SFTP is jut FTP on port 22 right? Well that’s what I tried and nothing
