FAQ Answer

What is SFTP? Why should I use it?

There are two types of SFTP. One is FTP via SSH (Secure SHell) and the other is FTP via SSL (Secure Sockets Layer). Literati's Web Server currently only supports FTP via SSH. You should use SFTP because is transfers you data and files in an encrypted channel, normal FTP does not. Literati recommends using Fugu or CyberDuck on Mac OS X computers, WinSCP on Windows computers, or SSH/SCP/SFTP on Unix/Linux machines.
