FTP can't connect (Filezilla)



I cannot connect to my FTP using Filezilla on host: files.000webhost.com

I get user response OK but than:

Response: 530 Login authentication failed
Error: Critical error: Could not connect to server

I changed account password and that’s not the problem. Thanks for any help.


make sure that…you type correct username and password

which u can in general tab!!!


I have the same problem. I finally got my phone verification done. Tried to use FTP but it gives the same error. I changed my password to be sure that has been registered correctly to the system. It didn’t´t help. It could be that the server is down - but I can access file manager. So it seems more likely that their is an error in authenticating the access to FTP.

Admin! Have you any advice?


I have the same problem…please find what Filezilla says,

It seems it was a temporary error. Lasted about an hour. Now I have the ftp access.


i have been trying from last night…it still says the same…


my problem still persist


Try FileZilla please.


in your geneal settings change the FTP password
and in FZ change the Genaral settings like in the images

it works fine…


Thank you all for help… It was me who made a stupid error. I was typing an account password instead of website password.

Works now like a charm.
