Hi I just created a new droplet from an old working snapshot.
For some reason I can’t connect to FileZilla using any of the old sftp users. I was hoping all I had to do was change the host IP in FileZilla to the new droplet IP and they would connect.
Any reason why it’s not working how I expected?
I also tried creating a new ftp user (testdroplet) but I get this error message -
Error: Could not connect to server
Here’s how I created the SFTP user testdroplet -
spock@droplet: sudo createhost Domain (without www.): testdroplet.com Username: testdroplet New password: passwordhere Retype new password: passwordhere passwd: password updated successfully New Virtual Host Created Enabling site testdroplet.com To activate the new configuration, you need to run: systemctl reload apache2 Complete! You now have a new Virtual Host Your new host is: http://www.testdroplet.com And its located at /sites/testdroplet/public_html spock@droplet:
How can I connect to FileZilla using the testdroplet credentials?
The protocol is SFTP and port 22.
I can connect to FileZilla using the new droplet SSH user (spock).
Thanks for any help you can provide!
