How to fix Ispconfig pure ftpd 530 login authentication failed ubuntu Linux

I was getting authentication failed error in my webserver which runs on ISPCONFIG 3.I tried changing password many times from Ispconfig web console. But didn’t worked for me. I tried from ftp client (filezilla) and from my gnome-terminal too. While trying to connect error returned by server isĀ ispconfing 3-pure-ftpd-mysql

User bikram OK. Password required
PASS (hidden)
530 Login authentication failed

From googling I fixed the above error. The solution that worked for me is:

/etc/pure-ftpd/db/mysql.conf

I’ve changed the line

MySQLServer 127.0.0.1

to

MySQLServer localhost

Restart pure-ftpd

Few weeks ago I faced Problem problem in establishing connection in ftp. Go through my older post of puref-ftpd here.

    Thanks for the input. I have just had (and solved) the same problem and also wrote a blog post about my experience: http://ma.juii.net/blog/fix-ispconfig-ftp-logins

    I think I know why this error occurs: When your MySQL root user is bind to localhost, it won’t work on 127.0.0.1.
