Error 530: I cannot connect to server using Dreamweaver or Filezilla

  • Answered
I have the right username and password combination, the cpanel credential. But both Dreamweaver and Filezilla keep showing error 530. I do not know why. Dreamweaver did not show such error before.
My site was full because of a huge error_log file, I deleted that file and some backup files. It seems the problem started after that.
Please help.
Hello, Thank you for contacting us about a 530 error when attempting to connect to your server with FTP.
