    I'm new to Plesk... Generally I find it great!

    I have a suggestion though regarding ftp / sftp access. Most people here I would have though would agree that standard ftp access is completely insecure and a bit of a security risk. There are freely available sFTP clients out there so connecting and transferring files by sFTP is fairly straightforward.

    I'd like to suggest that a future version of Plesk manages both ftp and sftp connections. At the moment it still has to be done manually adjusting the account accordindly and adding the user to the allowed group for SSH, or alternatively as someone described in the forum, chrooting the sftp-server.

    Just a thought but I think a lot of people would quite like that feature...

    Yes, I agree, sFTP is something that is a real requirement.

    What is the current method for enabling sftp? Could someone provide somewhat detailed instructions as to how to enable it in 7.5.2? Many thanks if so!

    Hi,

    I'd like to see Plesk support SFTP accounts too!

    Thanks.
