Currently I am running an Ubuntu 16.04 server on AWS to host my brothers and my website. I used this guide to help me set up and manage the server from ISPconfig. I am having trouble with getting FTP or SSH to work on it using the account logins I create from ISPconfig. To be clear, I am able to get a connection to the server but the server replies with the following in FileZilla: Status: Disconnected from server Status: Resolving address of mydomain.com Status: Connecting to MYIPADDRESS:21... Status: Connection established, waiting for welcome message... Status: Initializing TLS... Status: Verifying certificate... Status: TLS connection established. Command: USER username Response: 331 User username OK. Password required Command: 530 Login authentication failed Error: Critical error: Could not connect to server In SSH I can see that the user is created and is listed in the /etc/passwd list. To me it seems as if the passwords are not being written to the database correctly or something. I'm pretty new to linux and ubuntu but I was hoping someone might be knowledgeable enough to work through this with me. I can't even change the standard wordpress login php file name which is a huge security risk. Please let me know what you think may be happening and how to fix. Thanks for any help you guys can provide.
