Using SFTP Upload to Add Files to Your Site

Category: Tutorials | Last modified: January 22, 2023

In order to build a website with WordPress you may need  to securely upload files to your website. You can upload files to your Pressable websites via SFTP (Secure Transfer Protocol).

In order to get stared you will need an SFTP client. The two we recommend are:

Obtain Your SFTP Credentials

You will need FTP access through Pressable SFTP tools to find your credential details in the  MyPressable Portal. To start, click the name of the site or the settings icon for which you would like the details on the Sites page.

Next, navigate to the Users tab to find your details. You can click on the “refresh” icon in the SFTP Password section to update the password. Make sure to save this password securely for future use as it is not displayed after initial creation.

Connecting to Your Website Using your client.

We have step-by-step guides for connecting with Cyberduck and FileZilla.

If you’re not using one of these clients, here are the basic settings you’ll need:

  • Host:
  • Port: 22
  • Protocol: SFTP – SSH File Transfer Protocol
  • Logon Type: Normal
  • User: your username
  • Password: your password
