How to use FileZilla with SFTP and how to set it up.

  • Posted October 1, 2014

I want to download a copy of my servers data. My coder has been uploading all the files they been making, but I never have setup my own file access on the server for myself. I am use to using FileZilla for my other webspace, but this time I have a server but do not understand the instructions on how to setup the transfer program. Does anyone know how to setup FileZilla for SFTP with SSH and how to put in the key to the program?
