FTP login problem

Looking for Linux Server Admin or WordPress Expert? We can help.

On Cpanel server, i can’t login to FTP, first i reset the FTP password in WHM, still it is not working. I tried to login with another web site FTP login details, that too not working. I tried to login to Cpanel, it is working fine.

FTP login gets error

root@server10 [/scripts]# ftp localhost
Connected to localhost.
220———- Welcome to Pure-FTPd [TLS] ———-

On searching cpanel forum, cpanelkenneth have a simple solution


1. Restarting the FTP servers
2. Synchronize the FTP passwords

I have already tryed Synchronize, but do not restarted. A restart of FTP server fixed the problem.

root@server10 [/scripts]# ./restartsrv_pureftpd
Starting [ OK ]
Starting pure-authd:
root@server10 [/scripts]#
