Topic "Access denied when having a comma in a password?"

Author Message



I have an ftp site from a client that has a regular username but a password that contains a comma.

When I enter it during logging in I always get an access denied error.

First I thought that they changed the password but I could enter the phpMyadming with the same password.

When I do the same with the dos ftp command it works fine.

Is this a known issue?
