Default What is my password for my FTP client? - 03-25-2012, 08:10 PM


This may sound really silly but when I go into the members area at my FTP password is in stars:

I have tried copying the stars but I get a '421 service area'. I want to know how I can reveal my password so I can connect to my forums.

In your control panel, scroll down to 'View FTP Details', click into this then change it to something you do know by clicking 'Change account password'

The initial FTP password is the same as your member area password.
