SSH SFTP Updater Support

Description

Keeping your WordPress install up-to-date and installing plugins in a hassle-free manner is not so easy if your server uses SFTP. “SSH SFTP Updater Support” for WordPress uses phpseclib to remedy this deficiency.

Installation

  1. Upload the files to the /wp-content/plugins/ssh-sftp-updater-support directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress

Reviews

Years later, still working great

Plain FTP simply isn’t secure enough for everyday use. SFTP is great, but WordPress can make it a bit of a pain. This plugin makes it dirt simple, and works perfectly despite not having been updated in two years.
