Cant connect to my FTP account :(

Hi. I am working on VPS with Ubuntu 18.04.

So I cant connect to FTP server. ProFTPD look like is working but i cant log in my ftp account from outside.

I am quite fresh in VPS and webmin so that maybe a basic mistake or missconfiguration. Please be patient and give some tips or tricks i can try to do.

Thanks in advanced :slight_smile:

Edit in your “Webmin” under ProFTPD…change the ip to your domain ftp… if it does not work add a dns for your domain like ftp.

ah long time I was dealing with ftp palava… just use ssh and you would be fine…

If you would be a bit more precise, then it would be easiert to actually help you.
Is the connection not working at all or is the directory listing not working? Do you get any error message at all?

Hi. I have tried to connect (in filezilla) server by SFTP but i have get a message like this:

Status: Connecting to 45.x.xxx.x…
Status: Using username “santoxxxxxxx”.
Status: Access denied
Error: Authentication failed.
Error: Critical error: Could not connect to server

Hi.
After I am tried to login FTP i have get message like this:

Status: Connecting to 45.x.xxx.x:21…
Error: Connection timed out after 20 seconds of inactivity
Error: Could not connect to server
Status: Waiting to retry…

Apache is working well , ssh connection is working. Server is fresh with pre installed Webmin/Virtualmin/LAMP

Where i can get proper Server LOGS about this error or what i can do ???

I am sorry but i dont understand what i have to do :frowning:

Its looks like ProFTPD server is working…so…

If I recall it correctly, then the log files should be in /var/logs/ * .
From one of the connection attempts, it sounds like the credentials are wrong or the server settings are wrong.
