Hello @Ash,

if you are talking about your ftp-pw, you might need to contact your hosting provider.

Do a spotlight search for ‘Keychain Access’. You may be able to recover a lost FTP password from there, if you rebuilt your Mac from a Time Machine backup or a disk clone. This is where most FTP apps store passwords.
