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
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
You now have a new Virtual Host
Your new host is: http://www.testdroplet.com
And its located at /sites/testdroplet/public_html
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!
