Uploading Files to a Managed Cloud Project Using SFTP

With FileZilla, you can establish an encrypted network connection to your server to upload files via SFTP. FileZilla is a free server and client software for transferring files via FTP and SFTP. SFTP stands for SSH File Transfer Protocol and is an encrypted alternative to FTP. To use FileZilla to upload files via an SFTP connection, proceed as follows:

  • You have downloaded and installed FileZilla.

  • You have created an SFTP/SSH user.

  • Start FileZilla.

  • Click File > Site Manager.

    The FileZilla Site Manager opens.

  • Click New Site to create a new server profile.

  • In the Protocol list, choose the SFTP - SSH File Transfer Protocol item.

  • In the Host field, enter the SFTP/SSH host name.

  • In the Port field, enter the port to be used for SFTP/SSH connections.

  • In the Logon Type list, choose the Ask for password item.

  • In the User field, enter the user name to be used for SFTP/SSH connections.

  • Click Connect.

  • If FileZilla doesn't recognize the Server, you must confirm the connection with OK.

The SFTP connection will be established.

Once you are connected to your webspace, FileZilla displays your computer's directory tree on the left. On the right you will see the directory tree of your webspace.

You can now drag and drop files into the directories in your web space.
