  • W3 Total Cache is asking for CDN FTP login with port 21. How can I login with sFTP which uses another port number?

  • Specify a colon after the hostname like sFTP is not fully support btw.

    Thanks Frederick, I did this. It didn’t work. I had to enable FTP and changed the encryption.

    Ok, can you mark this issue resolved?


    Does appear to have worked. 🙂

    Same problem. Specifying a port number other than 21 in the ftp server does NOT work.

    For example shows me this error:

    Error: Unable to connect to<strong>:2999:21</strong> (ftp_connect()

    Any other ideas?

    Also, for me the CDN is only about putting files into a subfolder into the “public_html” folder (public_html/cdn). In this case, the path should start from /home/mydomain/public_domain/cdn or should it only have /public_domain/cdn (and should there be a leading slash?).

    Thirdly, once that is done, should I upload all the files from “wp-includes” into the cdn folder?
