Ubuntu: 530 Login incorrect vsftpd



Question:

I receive this error from yesterday when I installed and removed EHCP, it has changed all my configuration files for example Apache, vsftpd and others... I resolved other problems but I can't resolve vsftpd error of 530 Login Incorrect. I tried removing, reinstalling and canceling config file of vsftpd using the default configuration and edited it like first.

Can someone help me with this problem? Thank you

# Example config file /etc/vsftpd.conf  #  # The default compiled in settings are fairly paranoid. This sample file  # loosens things up a bit, to make the ftp daemon more usable.  # Please see vsftpd.conf.5 for all compiled in defaults.  #  # READ THIS: This example file is NOT an exhaustive list of vsftpd options.  # Please read the vsftpd.conf.5 manual page to get a full idea of vsftpd's  # capabilities.  #  #  # Run standalone?  vsftpd can run either from an inetd or as a standalone  # daemon started from an initscript.  listen=YES  #  # This directive enables listening on IPv6 sockets. By default, listening  # on the IPv6 "any" address (::) will accept connections from both IPv6  # and IPv4 clients. It is not necessary to listen on *both* IPv4 and IPv6  # sockets. If you want that (perhaps because you want to listen on specific  # addresses) then you must run two copies of vsftpd with two configuration  # files.  #listen_ipv6=YES  #  # Allow anonymous FTP? (Disabled by default)  anonymous_enable=NO  #  # Uncomment this to allow local users to log in.  local_enable=YES  #  # Uncomment this to enable any form of FTP write command.  write_enable=YES  #  # Default umask for local users is 077. You may wish to change this to 022,  # if your users expect that (022 is used by most other ftpd's)  local_umask=022  #  # Uncomment this to allow the anonymous FTP user to upload files. This only  # has an effect if the above global write enable is activated. Also, you will  # obviously need to create a directory writable by the FTP user.  #anon_upload_enable=YES  #  # Uncomment this if you want the anonymous FTP user to be able to create  # new directories.  #anon_mkdir_write_enable=YES  #  # Activate directory messages - messages given to remote users when they  # go into a certain directory.  dirmessage_enable=YES  #  # If enabled, vsftpd will display directory listings with the time  # in  your  local  time  zone.  The default is to display GMT. The  # times returned by the MDTM FTP command are also affected by this  # option.  use_localtime=YES  #  # Activate logging of uploads/downloads.  xferlog_enable=YES  #  # Make sure PORT transfer connections originate from port 20 (ftp-data).  connect_from_port_20=YES  #  # If you want, you can arrange for uploaded anonymous files to be owned by  # a different user. Note! Using "root" for uploaded files is not  # recommended!  #chown_uploads=YES  #chown_username=whoever  #  # You may override where the log file goes if you like. The default is shown  # below.  #xferlog_file=/var/log/vsftpd.log  #  # If you want, you can have your log file in standard ftpd xferlog format.  # Note that the default log file location is /var/log/xferlog in this case.  #xferlog_std_format=YES  #  # You may change the default value for timing out an idle session.  idle_session_timeout=600  #  # You may change the default value for timing out a data connection.  data_connection_timeout=120  #  # It is recommended that you define on your system a unique user which the  # ftp server can use as a totally isolated and unprivileged user.  #nopriv_user=ftpsecure  #  # Enable this and the server will recognise asynchronous ABOR requests. Not  # recommended for security (the code is non-trivial). Not enabling it,  # however, may confuse older FTP clients.  #async_abor_enable=YES  #  # By default the server will pretend to allow ASCII mode but in fact ignore  # the request. Turn on the below options to have the server actually do ASCII  # mangling on files when in ASCII mode.  # Beware that on some FTP servers, ASCII support allows a denial of service  # attack (DoS) via the command "SIZE /big/file" in ASCII mode. vsftpd  # predicted this attack and has always been safe, reporting the size of the  # raw file.  # ASCII mangling is a horrible feature of the protocol.  #ascii_upload_enable=YES  #ascii_download_enable=YES  #  # You may fully customise the login banner string:  ftpd_banner=Welcome to FTP service.  #  # You may specify a file of disallowed anonymous e-mail addresses. Apparently  # useful for combatting certain DoS attacks.  #deny_email_enable=YES  # (default follows)  #banned_email_file=/etc/vsftpd.banned_emails  #  # You may restrict local users to their home directories.  See the FAQ for  # the possible risks in this before using chroot_local_user or  # chroot_list_enable below.  chroot_local_user=YES  #  # You may specify an explicit list of local users to chroot() to their home  # directory. If chroot_local_user is YES, then this list becomes a list of  # users to NOT chroot().  # (Warning! chroot'ing can be very dangerous.

This is disabled by  # default to avoid remote users being able to cause excessive I/O on large  # sites. However, some broken FTP clients such as "ncftp" and "mirror" assume  # the presence of the "-R" option, so there is a strong case for enabling it.  #ls_recurse_enable=YES  #  # Customization  #  # Some of vsftpd's settings don't fit the filesystem layout by  # default.  #  # This option should be the name of a directory which is empty.

Solution:1

Open the file /etc/vsftpd.conf -

sudo nano /etc/vsftpd.conf

Change the pam_service_name entry so that it becomes -

pam_service_name=ftp

Press CTRL+X followed by Y to save.

Restart vsftpd -

sudo service vsftpd restart

Alternatively, you may reinstall vsftpd -

sudo apt-get remove vsftpd

sudo rm /etc/pam.d/vsftpd

sudo apt-get install vsftpd

This has been taken from here.
