I have stayed away from WP for 3 yrs because of the inability to auto update over a SFTP connection.. yes I mean SFTP .. not anything else 🙂 I have FTP permanently disabled on my server and want to keep it that way. I have a new project I would love to use WP, and was thrilled to see this plugin.. but I cant get it to connect..
So.. first the WP installed fine, I activated the ssh-sftp plugin and tried to connect to upgrade to v3.7 but it wont..
I use a non-conventional port also.. so I tried:
sftp://firstname.lastname@example.org:1234 (port #)
domain.com:1234 (port #)
I even tried using the root user/pass
I just continually get
Error: There was an error connecting to the server, Please verify the settings are correct.
I see nothing in my error logs…
I dont see an SFTP option only:
FTP FTPS (SSL) SSH2
and I have no idea if I have a passphrase, if it is needed, or how to make one if I do need it so
Please help me out here I really really want to be able to use WP now!
