Question

Not able to connect to Filezilla with my password

Hi! I understand that logging into FileZilla is with these credentials:

Host: sftp://Your_IP User: root (or your username) Password: Your password

For my password, I just reset it and the new password is in my email However when I tried logging into FileZilla with these 3 options, I am not able to

Previously I was able to figure this out, but my computer restarted and now I forgot the steps and the credentials to login (That’s why I reset my password)

I tried “Quickconnect” saved option but the error: fzsftp could not be started Error: Could not connect to server

Anyone have any ideas how to get my credential so I can login?

When connecting to your Droplet using SFTP, you simply need to use the SFTP option instead of FTP. Also, instead of using sftp://DROPLET_IP, only use the IP with root as the username and then your root password.

Are you using 22 as the port when attempting to connect and are you using the SFTP method instead of FTP?
