I know there was a recently opened thread about this, but it did not seem to cover my problem, and I didn't want to hijack someones thread. I also receive a 530 Error when trying to connect via FTP using an account I created in ISPConfig 3. MySQL server is running properly and FTPd seems to be connecting to it properly (no errors generated). So, I have a client named "remarx" with an ftp account "ftp" ... so the username is "remarx_ftp" - still unable to login with it. Verified password and database entry. All look fine. Syslog only says: Code: Mar 24 06:39:50 dedi144 pure-ftpd: (?@188.8.131.52) [INFO] New connection from 184.108.40.206 Mar 24 06:39:50 dedi144 pure-ftpd: (?@220.127.116.11) [WARNING] Authentication failed for user [remarx_ftp] Mar 24 06:39:54 dedi144 pure-ftpd: (?@18.104.22.168) [INFO] Logout. pureftpd.log is empty. I've turned on verbose logging to no avail. pureftpd.log is still empty. I've also (just to ease my own mind) verified the SQL statements and settings in pureftpd-mysql.conf and all look good. So, I'm at a loss with it. Any ideas?
