The password for the ftp server is displaying as incorrect. It seems like someone has changed it. Is there any way of finding out what the password is?

There is no way. If it's possible to get the password out without knowing it the password system would be pretty useless.

You will need to contact the host of the FTP server and request that they reset the password for you. They will then issue you a replacement password.

If it still does not work, you'll need to go through their support channels to troubleshoot the problem.
