Using SFTP Upload to Add Files to Your Site

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

In order to get started 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 site’s name or the settings icon for which you would like the details on the Sites page.

Next, navigate to the Collaborators | SFTP | SSH tab to find your details. You can click 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

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 SFTP username
  • Password: your SFTP password
