SFTP Authentication Failed, Need to retrieve password
[Solved] RE: SFTP Authentication Failed, Need to retrieve password

Should i change this value?

For those who care and might help others, just change the root main password and you are done with it, also, install WinSCP, configure your time-out settings and you are done with this issue, i hope i could contribute also to others to find a solution, special thanks to TGates and Keith aka fearworks

Yes I was using my root user password, not the MYSQL root password. I am able to log in using FileZilla SFTP without doing anything else. I am doing this on my private LAN and SSH is blocked to the outside world so I am not concerned with security for this basic setup I was testing. I guess the rest of the suggestion were pertinent to the security aspect?

Thanks given by:
