Hi friends,

I installed pure-ftpd in dedicated server which only have CentOS 7 (without any other panels). I configured all, enabled port in firewall, did user commit, etc.

But Filezilla return this error when try login: 530 Login authentication failed

I don't know where is the problem, i see that the directory "/etc/pure-ftpd/" have file "pureftpd-mysql.conf". Is required install mysql for work correctly pureFTPd?. I not installed him because not need in this server.

Or the problem is ither?.

Thank you very much.

Hey there! Just so we're all on the same page, this server doesn't have cPanel installed, correct?

Do you see anything relevant in /var/log/messages on the system? I would still expect FTP connections to be logged there without cPanel software, and it might get you more details.
