    I am trying to back up my database and files so I can update to the latest version (3.5.1) of WordPress. I am using Filezilla and when I attempt to login, it will not accept my password.

    I get the following error:

    Response: 331 User (my username) okay, need password.
    Command: PASS ********
    Response: 530 Login incorrect.
    Error: Critical Error
    Error: Could not connect to server

    I am using my username that I use to sign into WordPress and
    the password I use to sign in with as well.

    By the way, I have a different password for WordPress.org to login
    to the forums. I don't know if that has anything to do with it.

    FTP access info is not typically the same as your WP login - you need to get the FTP info from your hosting company.

    Actually, I should have started up by simply asking,

    What is the proper Host, Username and Password to use?

    We can't tell you that - it actually has nothing to do with WordPress per se - FTP is just a way of accessing any files on a server - you'll need to ask your hosting company (who is it BTW?).

    I'm trying to figure that out. I didn't realize it was done that way.
