If he tries to login in repeatedly in a short period of time, then even if the password is correct the api can return "throttled".
By default this is 5 logins within 300 seconds (5 minutes). (from https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/API:Login#Throttling ).

As I read the post, he tried to log in multiple times before, so this error can be expected.
Waiting for user to answer to my question to confirm.

This is actually expected behaviour and given there was no response, I suppose it works now?
