Hi @floridiverse,

I would assume the issue is behind you not having an SSH key on your Filezilla instance. As mentioned check the tutorial here:

https://docs.digitalocean.com/products/droplets/how-to/transfer-files/

But basically, you’ll need to create an SSH key on your Laptop, if you don’t have one already, added to your FileZilla and then add the SSH key to your Droplet.

Hey @floridiverse,

Another article I want to share is How To Use Filezilla to Transfer and Manage Files Securely on your VPS

Hope that helps!

Hi there,

What I could suggest is using SFTP. You can connect to your Droplet with Filezilla via SFTP as described here:

Let me know if you have any questions!

Best,
