    I am a webmaster for 18 years. I am using FrontPage. A few days ago I found I could not upload files to my server. The error messages are shown above. I have tried 2 computers, soon 3. I have tried Cute, WinSCP, CoreFTP, and other FTP programs all with the same result. Bluehost has been working on it without results. Thank you in advance for your reply.

    It clearly states that your credentials are incorrect. So check the username and password.

    Check the credentials with the owner/admin of the FTP server.

    When I try to connect with Filezilla, I receive an invalid certificate error.
