Using sFTP credentials, I could not log into a secure server in FileZilla. Turns out, I needed to change the settings and the host name.
1. Change settings
- Open the FileZilla application.
- In the top menu bar, click on FileZilla and select Settings.
- On the left side of the menu, expand the Connection section and highlight SFTP (simply click it).
- Click OK.
I found this info here.
2. Change host name
Update: for WP Engine, use
sftp://[sftp address from WP Engine]
For host name, try using
instead of domain.com or numbers (i.e. 104.999.246.229)
I found this info in the screenshot here.
