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). This method is more secure than standard methods of FTP. But, like FTP, it’s a method for transfer files from your computer to your web server.
In order to get stared you will need an SFTP client. The two we recommend are:
- Cyberduck ( MacOS and Windows ) — Full Setup Guide
- FileZilla ( Linux, MacOS, and Windows ) — Full Setup Guide
Obtain Your SFTP Credentials
Connecting to Your Website Using your client.
If you’re not using one of these clients, here are the basic settings you’ll need:
- Host: sftp1.pressable.com
- Port: 22
- Protocol: SFTP – SSH File Transfer Protocol
- Logon Type: Normal
- User: your username
- Password: your password
If you’re having trouble with your client or have additional questions, reach out!
