"SSH SFTP Updater Support" is the easiest way to keep your WordPress installation up-to-date with SFTP.
This plugin make my life easier. Works great! Thank You
Install the plugin, activate, enter the passphrase. Just works!
Simple plugin that enables you to connect via SFTP. Worked first time and enabled me to upgrade WordPress and plugins.
Wish I had found this over a year ago when my host scrapped FTP, brilliant plugin. Works great.
After I realized that the only options there are FTP and FTPS when WordPress asked me to enter login credentials, just with a single google search I came across this wonderful plugin. You can get it with wget and unzip in the plugins directory, activate and voila.
SFTP is the only non-anonymous-user option on my WP server, this plugin solved the problem of getting/installing WP updates using SFTP.
This just made my life easier using AWS. Thanks!
We don't have FTP on our server and needed this extension. It works great!
I´m using a VPS with about 10 WordPress installs. For security reasons I´ve completely disabled FTP. With this plugin I´m still able to use WordPress auto update features. I also did a quick write up on how I install WP via SSH and as a last step I suggested installing this plugin. Many thanks to the author.
I tried installing the PECL SSH extension on my server, but hit a load of dependency problems so I gave up and tried this instead. It worked first time and I had installed another plugin via SSH from within the WordPress admin within minutes.
