Step 1: Backup FTP configuration
Firstly, I would recommend you to take the backup of the original FTP configuration file.
Step 2: Change Pam Service Name
Open the FTP configuration file and locate the line pam_service_name.
# sudo vi /etc/vsftpd.conf
Change pam_service_name=vsftp to pam_service_name=ftp
Now save the changes and close the file. Also, restart the FTP service once.
# sudo service vsftpd restart
