There are two passwords on our system:
- Control Panel password, used to login to the web based control panel interface
- FTP Password, used to login to your server to upload / download your web site
These two passwords were initially set to the same value. However, you can make the FTP password different to the control panel password for various reasons. For example you may want to give access to your web developer to upload files for your web site but you don't want to let them access your control panel.
If you are changing passwords because of security concerns, make sure to change all the other passwords too:
- FTP Sub-account passwords
- Database passwords
Although most probably not necessary, you can also change your email passwords.
The following images show where and how to change the two main passwords mentioned in the first section above:
