I am having trouble getting my credentials to work for the mage connect. I have read several articles that say to delete the cache.cfg and the connect.cfg which I don't seem to have those files. I also tried to upload a new downloader folder and that will not work either. Can someone point me in the right direction?
Finally! What worked for me was setting
brute-force-bad-attempts-count = 0 in var/brute-force.ini
