My question is what I asked in the title? Can anyone help me out why this is coming? Even though I followed exactly said here
Hey buddy, I don't know if you've found the solution for your problem. If not, I'm having the same troubles today and here's how I finally got the thing to work:
1 - open FileZilla's "Site Manager" (upper left corner of the window).
2 - click " New Site".
3 - in the " Host" field, type your site's URL without the "h t t p" and the "w w w" parts, and also without adding "f t p." at the beginning. I was doing that (following directions from some thread I found online) and that was preventing the thing to work.
So if your site is "h t t p : / / w w w . greatestgolfswing . c o m" just put there "greatestgolfswing . c o m". (I put some extra spaces above on purpose, because WF was not accepting "links" in my reply)
4 - Port: leave blank. FileZilla will get it automatically for you.
5 - Server Type: "FTP - File Transfer Protocol"" (that's what I needed; didn't test it with the other types)
6 - Login Type: I tested it with both "Normal" and "Ask For Password" modes, and it worked.
7 - User: Put the username you use to log in to your HostGator (or your host, if different) account (CPanel).
8 - Password: Put the password you use to log in to your HostGator (or your host, if different) account (CPanel).
9 - Click OK at the bottom.
10 - Open the Site Manager again and click " Connect" at the bottom.
It should work flawlessly. It did for me, and I hope it will for you too.
But still error
