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

Wednesday, December 14th, 2011 | Business | No Comments

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.

PuTTY version 0.61 Released

Wednesday, July 13th, 2011 | Business | No Comments

After 4 years, Simon Tatham has finally released PuTTY 0.61, you can download it at his site.

New features / fixes include:

  • SSH-2 authentication using GSSPI
  • Non fixed width font support on Windows
  • GTK compiles under GTK version 2
  • Optimizations for speed (key exchanges in particular)
  • Support OpenSSH’s form of SSH compression
  • Support Windows 7 interface features (this makes me happy)
For those of you not familiar with PuTTY, it is a lightweight, fast and efficient SSH client (particularly for Windows users).  Frequently this is used to connect to remote servers and issue console commands.
Oh yeah, and it’s free.
