FTP Not Working

I tried to install proFTP using this tutorial and when I try to FTP in using filezilla I get the following errors: Response: 530 Login incorrect. Error: Critical error: Could not connect to server

What should I do to fix it?


I have a similar problem, but i know it’s due to having two-factor authentication activated in my case. Is there an sFTP client way to do this?

try using sFTP instead?

That tutorial is for Ubuntu 12.04 If you are using another version of Ubuntu it is likely that this tutorial will not work for you. Every droplet has a pre-enabled SFTP service by default that is much more secure.
