FTP Error Messages
Some nice info about ftp error codes so you know what they mean.
I am sure you see them all the time and sometimes you dont know what they mean, so take a look here.
The most common codes:
421 – often means: too many users logged to the same account.
530 – wrong login:pass, some servers auto-switch to 530 from
421 when they reach the max # of users. so notice the
error message attached to the code.
550 – common in Ratio site, If the file exsist it means you have no
access to the file or dir.
if you try changing dirs in an FTP and you`re getting a 550
message, it means you don`t have access to the dir, but,
It doesn`t mean you don`t have access to a dir
inside that dir. (meaning when getting a direct path, log into
the path directly, not 1 dir by 1).
