FTP issue on Windows VPS - cannot login

Q) After following CHP Setup video FTP does not login.. how can I fix this?

A) We've found issues where FTP Will not login.  We will replace MS FTP with FileZilla Opensource FTP Server

RDC to your server and download this file to your desktop on server:

next, Open IIS and delete your FTP Site.

Install filezilla FTP Server, next go to start > run and type: notepad  press enter or click OK.  Once open go to file > open and open file: C:\Program Files (x86)\FileZilla Server\FileZila Server.xml

at the top of the file it will look like this:

        <Item name="Admin port" type="numeric">14147</Item>

change to


<Item name="Admin port" type="numeric">14147</Item>


then save the file and exit.

Open Filezilla and click edit>settings
click passive mode settings on the left
Tick "use custom port range" set 50000 - 60000

Click OK, if it errors click OK and click OK again this will save the settings.

Login to WebsitePanel and go to configuration> virtual servers and remove FTP, then go to configuration > servers.  Click FTP and remove the service. Then add a new FTP service and choose filezilla. click add service.

next, click configurations > virtual servers and re-add FTP service then click update.


this will fix your issue.
