    Please fill in any relevant information that applies to you:
    • CentOS Version: CentOS 7 64bit
    • Centmin Mod Version Installed: i.e. 123.08stable
    I want to know how to create a single FTP user that can access all my Wordpress folders instead of creating one ftp user for every Wordpress website.
    Another problem is, I have followed every instruction on Pure-FTPD Virtual FTP Users - CentminMod.com LEMP Nginx web stack for CentOS
    and changed my FTP password but unable to login via Filezilla and getting the error below

    Code:
    Error:    Could not connect to server
    Status:    Waiting to retry...

    Nginx 1.19.x
    MariaDB 5.5/10.x
    outline exact commands used also are you connecting via IP or hostname ?

    tried restart pure-ftpd service too?
    Code (Text):
    service pure-ftpd restart

    right now you can't out of the box but if you use recreate instructions at Pure-FTPD Virtual FTP Users - CentminMod.com LEMP Nginx web stack for CentOS and instead of specific domain vhost you specify up a level, it should technically work

    so instead of
    Code (Text):
    pure-pw useradd YOURFTPUSERNAME -u nginx -g nginx -d /home/nginx/domains/domain.com
    pure-pw mkdb
    

    do one directory level above /home/nginx/domains
    Code (Text):
    pure-pw useradd YOURFTPUSERNAME -u nginx -g nginx -d /home/nginx/domains
    pure-pw mkdb

    The command I used to change password of an FTP user is

    Code:
    pure-pw passwd FTPUSERNAME
    pure-pw mkdb
    
    Im using IP to connect via Filezilla.

    I restarted the pure-ftp service and also created a new user like you said one directory level up....Still getting the same error.
