    How do you migrate ftp account from one server to another?

    The short of it is I migrated one of my sites. Everything came over correctly execpt FTP. I want to use the old FTP info but I can't remember the password that that FTP account had. How can I pull over the old account?

    Or how do I change my log to show the pass that that account is attempting to log in as so I can just manually set that account with the same password.

    For the main FTP account, that password the same as the cPanel user's password.

    If you are referring to an additional FTP account, one option you may wish to consider is changing the FTP password.
