How To Enable & Access SFTP Credentials For A Website?

In this article, we’ll explain how to enable and access SFTP credentials for a website created using ZipWP.

But first, let’s understand what SFTP is.

SFTP is crucial for WordPress sites as it ensures the secure transfer of sensitive files, protecting login credentials, themes, plugins, and content.

Its encryption safeguards against unauthorized access and maintains the integrity of files during transfers, reducing the risk of tampering.

By meeting security standards and compliance requirements, SFTP contributes to a robust defense against hacking attempts and enhances the overall security posture of WordPress sites.

Getting SFTP Credentials For A ZipWP Site

To enable SFTP and obtain credentials for a site, simply follow the steps below.

  • Go to your ZipWP dashboard.
  • Click on the three-dot menu for the site for which you need SFTP credentials.
  • Click on the SFTP option.
  • Toggle on the Enable SFTP option.

Once done, you will be able to view your SFTP credentials for your website. Now you can use them for file transferring using any SFTP client like FileZilla!
