In such a scenario, you will not be able to transfer or manage files, which is vital for the functioning of your blog/site.

However, the above problem can be easily resolved by changing FTP parameters as mentioned in the steps below:

(1) Open FileZilla

(2) Open File | Site Manager

(3) Select your site name from My Sites section
