How do I recover FTP User?

Post by jsjacks » Sat Jun 23, 2007 6:53 pm

I have looked through the documentation, through internet news groups, google and every other resource I can find and cannot seem to see any reference to how the FTP user is administered after the initial installation.

I have lost the username and password that were initially used and cannot see anyway to recover this information.

I realize I am probably very thick headed and it is right in front of me, but could someone provide me with an answer?

Thank you,

Jerry

Login to backend. Go to Site-> Configuration -> Server

You should be able to administer FTP settings here.

You can get your username base on ryadavali's suggestion, however, you probably can not retrieve password.
Joomla doesn't really create user for you but just let you enter whatever already exist.

BTW, I don't think this is a bug.

This is indeed not a bug, moving the topic to the Beta-2 Feedback forum.
