How To Connect To Your WordPress Optimized Template Site Using SFTP

Pre-Flight Check

  • SSH File Transfer Protocol (SFTP) is the most secure way to upload files to your WordPress Optimized Template site.
  • This article is intended specifically for connecting to a WordPress Optimized Template site using the free, cross-platform FTP client FileZilla, but the connection details should apply to any FTP client.

Step #1: Enter the Connection Details

  1. FTP/SFTP connection details are included in the “Welcome to your new WordPress site” email that was automatically sent to you upon adding the site in the Sites section of your Manage dashboard. In case you don’t have that handy, you will use:
    • Host: The domain name or IP address of the site
    • Username: The WordPress admin username created when adding the site
    • Password: The password you assigned to the WordPress admin user when adding the site
    • Port: 22 (Port 21 can be used for a standard FTP connection, but it is not recommended. SFTP should be used for maximum security. All connection details other than the port number are the same either way.)
  2. In FileZilla, enter the host, username, password, and port into the Quick Connect toolbar and press the Quickconnect button.FileZilla QuickConnect
