"SSH SFTP Updater Support" is the easiest way to keep your WordPress installation up-to-date with SFTP.
Easy to install.
Adds an option ssh to the settings location where wordpress asks for ftp connection data.
Compared to the popular approach of using pecl ssh2, this is better in terms of security (I don't want to store my key file, temporarily or permanently on my server) while still remains convenient.
Thank you very much, TerraFrost!
I prefer to use SSH because it's more secure. Using FTP sends passwords in cleartext so there's a chance it could be intercepted, leading to your website being hacked.
