How To Configure SFTP Access for Your xCloud Server

Using SFTP for secure file management on your xCloud servers is crucial for keeping your data safe. It encrypts your files during transfer, unlike standard FTP, which leaves them vulnerable.

To connect via SFTP using SFTP clients like Filezilla or Transmit, use the site user with SSH and SFTP access. You can authenticate with SSH keys or a password, but SSH keys are recommended for better security.

To set up SSH key authentication for your xCloud site user, create an SSH key pair on your local machine and link it to your site user. Make sure to follow the documentation for detailed instructions and add the SSH key specifically to the site user.
