FTP not working - 530 Login authentication failed

I installed a fresh copy of Ubuntu 22.04 and installed the CyberPanel. I created a website and I added an ftp account. But when I try to login with my ftp information I am getting error message, “530 Login authentication failed”. I checked to make sure, my user name and password is correct. I also have these following ports open for TCP, 21-22, 40000-50000 and 990.

I don’t know what I am doing wrong here… So I created a test server at this URL
https://193.122.135.18:8090/. The username and password is the default. I am still getting the same error message on the test server also.

Please help you out here.
Thank you!

Welcome @savors.map Happy you are here

530 Login authentication failed occurs when you are using either a wrong username, password, port or hostname

Go to https://SERVER_URL:8090/ftp/listFTPAccounts change password and confirm username

I see you are using FIleZilla - a crude workaround is go to the settings in the “Encryption” section and set “Use simple FTP” .

Also try another client see if you will find any success

I know it is not wrong password because I have tried different passwords and am getting the same error message. I also tried using “Only use Plain FTP” in FileZilla and it doesn’t work. I also tried to connect to the ftp server through the command prompt and I am getting the same error message.
ftpDOSError01

Post the contents of https://SERVER_IP:8090/serverlogs/ftplogs

You can login to the server and take a look directly.
https://193.122.135.18:8090/serverlogs/ftplogs
username : admin
password: 1234567

I recommend we reinstall it seems like password db is corrupt. Which os is this?

The OS is UBUNTU 22.04. This is a fresh install. The same error happened on my previous fresh install. So I ran up another server and installed in brand new on the new server. And I got the same error message on both the servers.

Seems to be reoccuring on almost all new installations. However, the only way to fix this is reinstall pureftpd or install CyberPanel without ftp.

Run this to remove pure-ftpd software package and reinstall it again just to eliminate any package and conf corruptions:

# create a snapshot of your server
# stop the service
systemctl stop pure-ftpd
# remove package and leftovers
sudo apt-get purge --auto-remove pure-ftpd
sudo apt install pure-ftpd -y
groupadd -g 2001 ftpgroup
useradd -u 2001 -s /bin/false -d /bin/null -c "pureftpd user" -g ftpgroup ftpuser
systemctl start pure-ftpd
mkdir /etc/ssl/private
openssl req -newkey rsa:1024 -new -nodes -x509 -days 3650 -subj "/C=US/ST=Denial/L=Springfield/O=Dis/CN=www.example.com" -keyout /etc/ssl/private/pure-ftpd.pem -out /etc/ssl/private/pure-ftpd.pem
rm -R /etc/pure-ftpd
mkdir /etc/pure-ftpd
cp /usr/local/CyberCP/install/pure-ftpd-one/* /etc/pure-ftpd/
systemctl restart pure-ftpd

If you get an error that Access denied for user ('cyberpanel' @ 'localhost' ... run the following command nano pureftpd-mysql.conf and change the password to correct cyberpanel user password you can find it here /usr/local/CyberCP/CyberCP/settings.py under DATABASES =

I ran all those commands and I am getting follow error message.


I rebooted the entire machine. Now the FTP service is not running and I am not able to connect to the server.

What is the results of

$ journalctl -u pure-ftpd --no-pager |sed -e "s|$(hostname)|hostname|g"

Try run
systemctl start pure-ftpd.service

I ran both the commands and this is what I am getting.

Kindly just copy paste the following commands:

journalctl -u pure-ftpd --no-pager |sed -e "s|$(hostname)|hostname|g"
# on new line <= this is just a comment to guide you
systemctl status pure-ftpd.service

and copy paste the results here not screenshot

Not really fix but use SFTP by creating on site manager SSH account for site. That will be much more secure option than FTP.

Well just what i thought pure-ftpd was not fully installed. I also soemthing to indicate it here FTP not working - 530 Login authentication failed - #9 by savors.map when you creating a user for pure-ftpd.

RUn this line by line dont skip

sudo apt-get remove --purge pure-ftpd pure-ftpd-common
sudo apt autoremove
sudo apt install pure-ftpd -y
groupadd -g 2001 ftpgroup
useradd -u 2001 -s /bin/false -d /bin/null -c "pureftpd user" -g ftpgroup ftpuser
systemctl start pure-ftpd
mkdir /etc/ssl/private
openssl req -newkey rsa:1024 -new -nodes -x509 -days 3650 -subj "/C=US/ST=Denial/L=Springfield/O=Dis/CN=www.example.com" -keyout /etc/ssl/private/pure-ftpd.pem -out /etc/ssl/private/pure-ftpd.pem
rm -R /etc/pure-ftpd
mkdir /etc/pure-ftpd
cp /usr/local/CyberCP/install/pure-ftpd-one/* /etc/pure-ftpd/
systemctl restart pure-ftpd

Yes. if you need to go this direction the ideal way that i have done was install cyberpanel without ftp and setup https://devanswers.co/install-ftp-server-vsftpd-ubuntu-20-04/. Works like a charm too.

I have tried on test server it wierd because it worked previously but here is what i have done and it worked:

sudo service pure-ftpd stop
sudo apt-get autoremove pure-ftpd
sudo apt-get purge pure-ftpd
sudo rm -r /etc/pure-ftpd
sh <(curl https://raw.githubusercontent.com/usmannasir/cyberpanel/stable/preUpgrade.sh || wget -O - https://raw.githubusercontent.com/usmannasir/cyberpanel/stable/preUpgrade.sh)

COmpletely remove all traces of ftp or pureftpd from your server.

Just install vsftp for a secure ftp if you dont care about managing users on a dashboard

sh <(curl https://raw.githubusercontent.com/josephgodwinkimani/cyberpanel-mods/main/install_vsftpd.sh || wget -O - https://raw.githubusercontent.com/josephgodwinkimani/cyberpanel-mods/main/install_vsftpd.sh)

You will access ftp with user ftpuser and the password you create during the process. This user will access /home/

You can create other users by running:

# usercreatedoncyberP managed mydomain.com
sudo usermod -d /home/mydomain.com usercreatedoncyberP
sudo chown usercreatedoncyberP:usercreatedoncyberP /home/mydomain.com/public_html

I use this method on several servers and it works. Just used in test server and it works. Good luck

I tried to install vsftp and I got error message ftpuser already exsits. So I ran command sudo deluser --remove-home ftpuser. Then I tried to install again. But I am getting error message cannot create /etc/ssh/sshd_config: Permission denied. failed
