FTP Publishing - October 2009

This month, we have several reports from bloggers who, for one reason or another, have changed the FTP username and / or password on the domain host server, and then updated the username / password in their Blogger FTP settings. Much to their dismay, when attempting to publish their blog, they find the old username / password being sent to the remote server.
I have verified it's saving my new username in the publishing settings and yes, I'm seeing the error based on the posting status. I get the following ...
FTP login failed (server: ftp.domain.com, username: myoldusername, reason: 530 User myoldusername cannot log in. )


Are you seeing this behaviour, when trying to publish your blog?
  • What is the blog URL?
  • What is the FTP server setting?
  • When did you make the setting change?
  • Did you verify the problem, by examining the host server activity logs?
