How to Configure SFTP


This guide walks you through configuring SFTP. We have used FileZilla as the SFTP client for this example. You can use any SFTP client of your choice.


Step 1: SFTP Information

Copy the SFTP details in the Site Information section of the Site Dashboard.

Step 2: Site Manager

Open FileZilla. In the “File” Menu, click on “Site Manager”

Step 3: New Site

In the Site Manager, click on New Site.

Step 4: Add Details

You can now add SFTP details.

For Protocol, select “SFTP – SSH File Transfer Protocol


Step 5:  Connect

You need to fill three important details:

  1. Select the Protocol as SFTP – SSH File Transfer Protocol
  2. Enter the value for Host and Port as you copied from the Site Information screen earlier.
  3. Enter the Username and Password. You have already noted down these details in the first step. If not, go to site dashboard and note down the username and password.

Fill the details and click on “Connect”.


Step 6: Confirm

Confirm the details and check the “Always trust this host” checkbox.

Step 7: Done

Once you click “OK”, your connection will be established. You can now see your site content in your SFTP Client.
