FTP on SpudPress

The easiest way to move your website to SpudPress

This tutorial covers how to access your website via FTP


FTP is the classic way to upload your WordPress site.

Using FTP with SpudPress is little or no different than using FTP with any other web hosting service.

Locate login credentials

After creating your FTP-based SpudPress site, please go to the “Deploy” tab for your site to find all the necessary credentials.

Here’s an example of what it looks like:

Please note that there will likely be a custom port included with the credentials (custom ports are not always common).

Logging in via SFTP

One important thing to note is that SpudPress only supports SFTP, regular FTP connections are not allowed. We do this to protect the security of your website.

Most FTP clients also supports connecting via SFTP, just make sure to select the SFTP option.

In this example we’re using the popular, free and open source FileZilla FTP client.

In the top, fill out your credentials. Make sure to prefix the host with sftp:// — and don’t forget about the port.

You might be prompted to trust the server’s host key. Please accept it if the fingerprint looks like the screenshot above.

You are now connected and can access all files by navigating to /site/public.
