Hello @stay

Try using CLI to change user password

cyberpanel changeFTPPassword --userName admin_atozisocertificate --password mynewpassword

And try again

I tried to connect through Filezilla again after changing the password. But, it again gave me the same error.

Recreate the ftp account

I tried this multiple times. But, its not working for me.

Which VPS do you have for hostinger the cyberpanel one or the other option?

I’m using cyber panel on aws right now.

Hi, I have the same problem, My Cyberpanel is installed on GCP with Ubuntu OS 22.04 LTS. I tried create another FTP account but still getting

530 Login authentication failed

Not sure, what I can do now…

Hello @stay @sochun2424

There seems to be an issue with FTP here are the steps I came up for my users and it works:

  1. Download and Install Bitvise SSH Client

  2. On the Login tab key in your SSH username and password and Login

  3. Click on New SFTP Windows on the sidebar

  4. Upload files

  5. Login to CyberPanel and fix permissions for your website

instructions for linux clients to follow…

Hi Joseph,
Exactly the same issue (error 530) here. Is the fix for Linux already available? Looking forward to hearing from you. Thanks! Ralph

I am having the exact same issue. Running Cyperpanel 2.3 on a Vultr instance with Ubuntu 20.04 LTS x64 and the FTP account I create does not work. Is there any solution to this?

Version 2.3 Build 3

Use phpMyAdmin to update the users table in your cyberpanel database. The problem is that the passwords are being hashed and stored which is good for security but it doesn’t work for logging in. Just change the hashed ppassword to what ever plain text password you want and then login with FTP like usual.
