I have recently installed a new version of wordpress on a rackspace cloud server account. I have everything the way I need it except for an issue with FTP.
I have installed vsftp and all seemed to be working fine until I tried to install a plugin at which point I am taken to a screen that asks for FTP or FTPS information (user, pass and host).
I enter the info I know works (does in my ftp client) using the root account of the server. I get a message saying my username and password are incorrect? I tried again using the IP of the server instead of 'localhost' but still the same message.
Also, this is an unmanaged server so I cannot just call the host and have a quick fix...I have wrestle through it myself...at least until Monday when I was told I could get more assistance.
Thanks in advance for anyone out there that can help (or tries to).
