FTP Error 530: Login Authentication Failed

The error message "530 Login authentication failed" typically appears when the hostname or IP, username, or password you've entered into your FTP client is incorrect. Please ensure that your hostname or IP, username, and password are all accurate.

If you're confident that all of these details are correct, the issue may be with your keyboard layout. Sometimes, the FTP server or client may not accurately recognize certain special characters. Even if you don't believe this could be the issue, consider changing your password.

Once you've altered your password, and you're sure it's being input correctly into your FTP client, consider using the IP address of the server in place of the hostname.
