    FTP? Filezilla - problems uploading

    Need help with the Filezilla FTP error message -

    I got the website uploaded, with the help of a friend as there was a redirect on the homepage (I gave him the FTP username and password etc and he fixed this), but now I need to change 2 of the pages, and Filezilla will no longer connect to the server!

    It says this error message:

    Status: Resolving address of ftp.jonathanmccree.com
    Status: Connecting to
    Status: Connection established, waiting for welcome message...
    Response: 220-Matrix FTP server ready.
    Response: 220-This is a private system - No anonymous login
    Response: 220-IPv6 connections are also welcome on this server.
    Response: 220 Please note: files for your website must be stored under the htdocs directory.
    Command: USER jonathanmccree.com
    Response: 331 User jonathanmccree.com OK. Password required
    Command: PASS *********
    Response: 530 Authentication failed, sorry
    Error: Critical error
    Error: Could not connect to server

    And I am absolutely positive the password/username are correct. Could it be from when my friend logged in using the FTP info? Need it to work again.

    Thank you,

    Either the username/password is wrong or the FTP server is configured incorrectly.
