How do I change the password for an FTP account?

You can change the password to any of the available FTP accounts. Follow
the instructions below.

NOTE: Your overall
FTP disk quota is limited by the total disk space available for your hosting
account. For example: If you have 5000 MB of disk space in your hosting
account and set a FTP account's disk quota to 9999 MB, the quota will
still be 5000 MB.


Steps

  1. Go to the "FTP Accounts" page in your cPanel control panel.
  2. When the page loads, you will see an "Accounts Management" table
    consisting of the following information split into six columns:
    • User - This entry shows the login/username for
      the associated FTP account.
    • Type - This entry shows various icons depending
      on the type of FTP account. View the "Legend" table for
      further information.
    • Directory - This entry shows the location of the
      FTP account (the FTP user is restricted to the directory defined
      in this entry).
    • Disk Usage - This entry shows the amount of disk
      space used by the associated FTP account.
    • Quota - This entry shows the amount of disk space
      allocated to the associated FTP account.
    • Functions - This entry provides the following
      options:
      • Delete - Click
        on the Delete icon to delete the FTP account
        from the system.
      • Edit Quota -
        Click on the Edit Quota icon to change or modify
        the amount of disk space allocated to the associated FTP account.
      • Change Password - Click on the Change
        Password icon
        to change or modify the password of
        the associated FTP account.
  3. Find the FTP account you want to modify in the "User" column.
  4. Click on the Change Password icon in the "Functions" column
    for the associated FTP account.
  5. Enter the new password in the "New Password" text box.
  6. Click on the Change button.
