How to Change the FTP Password IIS


You are here:

Microsoft Internet Information Services, or IIS, includes an FTP component that allows you to connect, upload and download files from your server. FTP stands for File Transfer Protocol and is an unencrypted, insecure protocol that runs from port 21 of your server. FTP is insecure because all username and password information is sent in plain text over the network. For this information, it is recommended that you not use local Windows accounts to authenticate users on IIS FTP. You can create custom FTP users and custom FTP passwords on IIS with a few clicks from the IIS Administration Panel.

  • Click “Start” and type “inetmgr” without quotes in the Search box.
  • Press “Enter.”
  • Click “FTP” and then click the “User Accounts” tab at the bottom of the panel.
  • Click the “->” button next to the name of the user you would like to modify.
  • Type the new password twice under the “Password” and “Confirm Password” dialog boxes and click “OK.” Your FTP password has now been changed.
