Upload files with SFTP
You can upload files to your Managed WordPress account with SFTP. You can use any FTP client to do this, such as FileZilla. This is useful for managing large file uploads onto your WordPress site, or if you want to make changes to your WordPress site manually - such as installing a custom theme or plugin.
Note: The first part of this guide helps you find your SFTP credentials. If you already know your SFTP hostname, port, username and password you can start with Step 6.
