If your Photo Cart is suddenly getting a 500 error or only displaying a blank page then you or your hosting company has updated the PHP (programming language) to PHP 7 which Photo Cart is not compatible with (and will not be compatible with) mainly because of the removal of the my_sql functions which are replaced with my_sqli functions. 

You would need to have the PHP version downgraded to 5.6 in order for Photo Cart to work. If downgrading the PHP doesn't work then you may have to update Photo Cart to the last version of 7. Download Photo Cart 7 upgrade files. Upgrade instructions.

Photo Cart was retired in 2015. Check out Sytist.

I can easily sign into my photo cart, I know the PW and username.

My FTP tells me login failed.

I can't upgrade if I can't get into my FTP

Your photocart password and username might not be the same for your FTP. FTP requires the username and password for your main website or your website control panel.

are you able to get into the website control panel? I'm not talking about your photocart admin.

it does not matter. NOTHING works, old passwords new ones, made up ones... usernames I've used and are using.. I've been putting in user names and passwords for over 24 hours.

I'm done! This is unreal.. and everyone says it's this fault or that fault. Transit says it's photo cart.. Photo cart has no clue.. I can't upload any images, I can't update and I have NO IDEA what to do next

i think top line is nothing in front

when you changed your username and password was that in control panel or photocart?

my experience with Transmit is limited. i only used it a day or two when i was having a similar problem to yours and my web hosting co told me Fetch was broken.
they were wrong. the problem was my site had been attacked and they shut down all access to it. Took them two days to figure out they shut it down. after that we got things working in ten minutes. if you can access your website control panel through your web browser you can FTP from there using the file manager tool. address is something like and it will prompt for new username and password. if you can't access control panel your web host may have blocked your IP address and you would need to call them.
