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

If you are trying to log into your server using the root user, the passwords in the password.txt file will not help. You need to enter your server's root password. The root password in the password.txt is strictly for MySQL root user.

As a security note, I would suggest using WinSCP (instead of FIleZilla) and create a root user 'key pair' and disable password login to help protect your server. There are different ways of doing this depending on your OS and OS version. Google will be much more helpful than me on that subject LOL. I have done it on my Ubuntu 14.04 server, but that was a couple years ago.
