I have what seems like the same problem as k_s

-IP: 64.120.224.218
-Control panel username: chasbeen
-Domain: http://www.chasbeen.frih.net/
-Control Panel: http://www.chasbeen.frih.net/config/, http://64.120.224.218:2222/ or http://cp.frih.net/

I tried changing the password in direct admin but keep getting the incorrect login message
chasbeen

A batch job completed or you fixed it.

Think temporary FTP server failure in vps 2. Now it's working fine for me too.

Yes. Again i too can't able to login. Let us wait for Bonding to know the issue.

I'm back in now with my new changed password. hopefully it will be ok now...
k_s_baskar
now it's working fine. think it's solved

I set to passive on FireFTP for firefox but although I got in, I did not have access to my objects...

No matter though I'm using an ftp client with "passive" unchecked and I get in ok.
Just letting you know.

How I know only Dreamweaver need "passive" checked. Other FTP-s better work with this option unchecked.

So heres the chronology

1.A few weeks ago getting login errors with correct password
2.Changing password in cPanel made no difference.
3.Started using passive mode in FTP Client. That worked for a few weeks.
4.Now I am back to (1)+(2)
chasbeen
Its working now...
chasbeen
Ok
The password stopped working again. This is a recurring problem. Is it something to do with the server I'm on?
I see there is 3 different Control Panes http://www.chasbeen.frih.net/config/, http://64.120.224.218:2222/ or http://cp.frih.net/
Is there any difference which one you use to create a new FTP password. I tried to do this but cannot get any password to work.

I logged an error (000015093) and posted here also. Thanks.

No matter what In try. Will wait till morning on the latest password to see if some batch job takes care of this, otherwise my sons web project hit a bump!
chasbeen
We are still stuck. Any joy. Also when /if it happens again whats the procedure to get a temporary password?

I have a similar error. I get Login incorrect, then Critical error when I try to connect with FileZilla.

I think Server 2 has a problem in this area
Bondings
Is it working again now?
chasbeen
Yes, it works with the very last password I entered into Control Panel.
Why does this keep happening and is there anything I can do to prevent it?
Thanks for the time and effort you put in on this great website. I'm running one that is also mutually beneficial to javascript / front end developers (And I do a lot of work on that)
chasbeen
So, first of all thanks for the doubling of the webspace to 1.5MB
My FTP password became no good all of a sudden. It happened about a minute to midnight on Sunday March 18th for accounts on Server 2.

This is the same as the previous times (See above).
I went to my cPanel and changed the password but that did not help. I did this before sending this.

My son just got an account on Server 4 but does not have the problem.

Thanks
Bondings
What about now? It seems that sometimes the ftp server needs to be restarted on Server 2/3 as it stops some/all users connecting for some unknown reason. I'll probably make a cron job to restart it every few hours - the only disadvantage of that is that the current connections would be broken but that would only be once per every few hours.
chasbeen
My new password is working (Thanks)
From a personal point of view once every 24 hours would be fine.
Obviously at the slowest traffic peiod.
Thanks again Bondings. Coming to Europe soon. I'd buy you a beer if I got to Belgium!

You need to restart Server 2/3 as it stoping me connecting using ftp.
Life is short so did you get round to doing the cron job to restart it every few hours?

Bondings
Restarted. And no sorry I haven't created it yet.
chasbeen
Yes, I can get in now...
