FTP instead of HTTP


I have a Magento installation in a VPS with Cpanel. When I enter in the url, the Magento website loads correctly. But when I enter, the browser loads, and it asks for the FTP password. Is it the .htaccess file? Or what could be wrong?

Thank you


Re: FTP instead of HTTP

It could be one of many things. I would check the following:


  • .htaccess
  • VirtualHost configuration
  • Magento base url (check from the database)
  • cPanel redirects
