Haven't logged in for some time and now I have no access to the FTP server. Could anyone tell me what happened?

Probably your IP changed. Try updating the IP lock.

Other than that, without a proper description of the error you're getting, it's hard to diagnose

The same thing happened to me too. Looks like several users lost FTP access rights by mistake.

Since we have no registered FTP contribution or upload by you I can't verify that you have been eligible for FTP access. Unless you have some email or PM proving that you requested access and got it I am not sure how we can verify that you ever had FTP access.

If you had FTP in another account, remember that if you have 24 or less posts your account will be deleted if you don't login in in 6 months or more.

Judging by the OP's registration date, it's highly possible that he applied (and possibly got approved) for FTP access before the new contribution rules went into effect.

Yeah, most likely. I have a theory of why the FTP access was removed from him and one other member. It's been sorted out and access has been restored.

Your account has not been removed, you are probably using the wrong password, just as it says. Check the FTP page and reset it.

^ Well, hell. That was it. When i copied it out of the servers page i guess i was either missing or getting an extra character. Typed it manually and it worked fine.

What often happens is a space character gets added and copied at the end of the string, if you're not careful when selecting the string with your mouse.
