FTP Not Working

August 18, 2016 2.9k views
Apache Ubuntu 16.04

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?

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.
