FTP Error: 530 User cannot log in, home directory inaccessible
« on: January 16, 2016, 05:08:05 PM »
Hi,

I am using Windows 2008 R2 server with Microsoft IIS 7.5. I have configured Microsoft FTP server on this. But when I try to login, I get following error message:

530 User cannot log in, home directory inaccessible.

Following is the FileZilla logs:

Status: Resolving address of xx.xx.xx.xx
Status: Connecting to xx.xx.xx.xx:21...
Status: Connection established, waiting for welcome message...>
Response: 220 Microsoft FTP Service
Command: USER myftpuser
Response: 331 Password required for myftpuser
Command: PASS ***************
Response: 530 User cannot log in, home directory inaccessible.
Error: Critical error
Error: Could not connect to server

How can I fix this?

 This problem occurs when the home directory of the Default FTP site does not exist or the user does not have Read permission on the home directory.

Instructions for MS FTP 7.x and later versions

Such error appears if the user has no correct permission in FTP authorization rules. This rule can be added by following below mentioned steps:
Open IIS by clicking on Start >> Run type inetmgr and Press enter.
Expand the Server in IIS.
Expand Sites tree structure by clicking on Sites.
Further click on Default FTP Site node
Select LocalUser virtual directory
Double click on FTP Authorization Rules



Make sure that the FTP user is listed there and has READ, Write Permissions.

FileZilla 530 Login authentication failed usually occurs when you are using whether an incorrect username, password, hostname or connection port. The first thing you need to do is make sure you are using relevant and correct username and password when accessing the server.
