    Default FTP login not working for 1 account , Cpanel login work fine !!!

    i have 1 account that the cpanel login is working fine , but ftp login not working , it give "530 Login incorrect" !!! is just for 1 account , i have tried to fallowing solution

    update the ftp service .
    froce updated all the cpanel services .
    Synchronize FTP Passwords.
    added new ftp user for this account .
    suspend/unsuspend the account .
    checked the file /etc/proftpd/(username).


    i have tried filezilla, cuteftp , ftp broiwser , via ssh login , but still ftp login is not working , cpanel does perfectly .

    the error log show just this two line
    Sep 2 16:38:58 server proftpd[7432]: xx.xx.xx.xx (::ffff:196.206.22.66[::ffff:196.206.22.66]) - FTP session opened.
    Sep 2 16:38:59 server proftpd[7432]: xx.xx.xx.xx (::ffff:196.206.22.66[::ffff:196.206.22.66]) - FTP session closed.

    Did you check /etc/ftpusers ?
    If the user is listed there, remove it, this should fix your issue.

    Can you provide the FTP log from FileZilla for the account when you try to log into it?

    Did you try to suspend / unsuspend the account ?
    Also did you check that the account's encrypted password doesn't begin with "!!" in /etc/shadow ?

    I had this happen oddly enough too. Something got corrupt I guess. in WHM I just changed the pw for that account, and then changed it back, and that fixed the problem for me.
