Cannot publish a site with WPB for cPanel: "Can't receive authorization to work with the host"


The site is not published while being logged in to end-user's cPanel ( or higher) from admin "WebHost Manager (WHM)". The following error appears in editor:

The site cannot be published to the specified location

Also the error below appears in sitebuilder.log:

2014-03-25T01:18:44+02:00       [EMERG] /JsonApi/       SB_Site_Compiler_Target_AuthoriseException:     Can't receive authorization to work with the host 'domain.tld' with login 'end-user'
file: /usr/local/sb/include/SB/Site/Compiler/Target/FTP.php
line: 181
code: 0     Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64)     AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/33.0.1750.146 Safari/537.36


The root cause of this is that in this case some parameters, particularly FTP passwords, are not propagated from "WHM" to cPanel.


Make sure that you are logged in to cPanel as a customer, and that you did not use the option to log in to cPanel from WHM > Account Information > List Accounts.
