SSH SFTP Updater Support
Cannot use standard ftp (3 posts)

    Thank you for a potentially very useful plug-in.

    I cannot test ssh2 until I have converted my Vandyke style private key to openssh.

    But I did try using your plug-in as standard ftp & it did not accept my user/password, though the same combo works fine on FileZilla etc.

    If you can fix standard ftp then at least I can use your plug-in with standard ftp until I get the corrected format private key.

    Installed the plugin via the blog browser upgrade btw, automatic, said it was v1. Installed fine and activated fine but ftp didn't work.

    Best Regards,

    There's a "Connection Type" field with three radio buttons - FTP, FTP (SSL) and SSH2. This plugin selects SSH2 by default. If you want to do FTP you'll need to hand select FTP.

    That's what I did, didn't work. Says my username/password combination incorrect. Not so, tested with filezilla right away.

    So to use the autoupgrade I had to deactivate your plu-in to get the standard screen for ftp update.

    Thanks for the good work,
    Nico M
