Why am I receiving the following error: "530 login error" when trying to log into my FTP server?

Release Found: Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3


When a user logs into Very Secure FTP (vsftpd) they are greeted with a "530 login error" message.


First things first, always double check to make sure the password you are entering is the correct one for the user you are attempting to log in as.
