Where can I find the credentials of the cpanel account owner...me? I'm new to using a VPS and it don't help that I'm tech challenged.That info is intended to be used for WHM logins and ssh. I thought that was specified in the login emails. Normally ftp logins are done using the credentials of a cpanel account owner. It is a bad idea to allow root to use ftp since the protocol itself implements no encryption and anyone could steal a password if they were sniffing packets. It is worth noting that there is FTPS and SFTP which implement encryption and a secure handshake on connections.
Use the root info to access WHM. From WHM, create a cPanel account for the site you will be hosting. During this process you will create a username/password for the account and that user/password will work for FTP.Where can I find the credentials of the cpanel account owner...me?
