vsftpd on Ubuntu Server – 530 Login incorrect

I got “530 Login incorrect” even after I was sure that I used correct password and reinstalled vsftpd

I solved the problem by using the following method found on the website:

modify the line in the /etc/vsftpd.conf file:

pam_service_name=vsftp

to

pam_service_name=ftp
