Mac - Ftp user not working


Ok. So I’m new to this FTP access, etc.
I created a username so I can upload a website, I go into my account on dreamhost and I try to access with the new user and password.
When the new window pops-up I put the username and password that I recently created and it tells me that it is incorrect.

Any suggestions? Am I doing something wrong? Is there anyway to solve this?

Please help.

Thank you


passwords set in the panel don’t make it to the server instantly, the panel confirmation says it takes 10-15 minutes, but thats a static canned estimated time i think anyway and i have seen it take longer to push out.


double check to make sure your user (in the panel) is allowed FTP access, I make that mistake every time.
