Help: I only have SFTP/SSH access, How can I update my WordPress plugins?

Wednesday, December 14th, 2011 | Business | by

WordPressRan into this one today.  A site with only SFTP/SSH access, and the server required the “FTP” method of updating plugins/WordPress.  Remember FTPS is not SFTP.  FTPS runs over HTTPS/SSL, while SFTP runs over SSH.  Confusing?

Fortunately there’s a nice little plugin called, SSH SFTP Updater Support.

You must download it, then upload the contents of the zip into /wp-content/plugins/, then Activate the plugin in the admin.  It will add an SSH2 (which is used for SFTP) option to your “Updates” screen.

Worked for me.
