secondary ftp cpanel credentials wrong, explicit ftps not working in filezilla

Recommended Posts

When I set up a second FTP account in cPanel the info is wrong, particularly in the Filezilla xml import file:


1. "user" instead of "user@domain.tld"


2. the xml file does not change this default Filezilla setting:

"Use explicit FTP over TLS if available"


Unfortunately, while FTP/TLS is connecting, it then times out getting the directory listing. So you have to change that setting to:

"Only use plain FTP (insecure)"
