Question

SSH okay via PuTTy - Unable to SFTP

After setting up my droplet and installing Wordpress, I need to get the SFTP working through WP as well as FileZilla.

Whenever I start up PuTTy to connect to the droplet, it does not ask for a password as the SSH keys appear to be working fine.

I’m able to run commands, etc. via the PuTTy shell.

However, I am not able to access my droplet via SFTP, although I’m using the correct User and Password that gives me Sudo access. I left the port at 22 for now.

Within FileZilla, after running Tail, it says “No supported authentication methods available.” I don’t under this. The SSH keys appear to be working and I can access easily via PuTTy, but not using my FTP application (set for SFTP port 22).

Any ideas? TIA
