Trouble With FTP


Hey guys, I recently registered for a hosting plan here at DreamHost and couldn’t wait to get started on my website. However, I ran into a little snag with FTP and was wondering if somebody could help out.

Whenever I try to login with WebFTP/Filezilla/WinSCP/etc using the information from the e-mail, I always get a “530 Login incorrect” Error. Am I doing something wrong?

Any help is appreciated, thanks!


Have you created a Fully Hosted Domain yet? That process will set up an FTP user for you. Your DreamHost panel login isn’t the same as an FTP login.
