Yesterday, when I was cloning a client site with ManageWP, I ran into an issue with an error message, “530 Login authentication failed.”
The error message displayed after I had entered all the FTP account information:
as well as the database credentials:
- Database name
- Database username
- Database password
I did my troubleshooting. Checked and double-checked the FTP username and FTP password, comparing it to what was in cPanel.
I even changed the password.
