Well, a few more dilemmas if you have the patience to help.
How do I turn off ftp and turn sftp on? The web panel is not clear. Nothing there to confirm sftp is turned on or off. I see a place to kill ftp. If I kill ftp does that enable sftp?
In filezilla's SiteManager I entered:
Logon Type: Normal
Account (left blank)
Protocol: SFTP-SSSH File Tranfer Protocol
all other settings left as defaults.
When I try to connect with FileZilla I get...
Response: fzSftp started
Command: open "firstname.lastname@example.org" 22
Command: Pass: ********
Status: Connected to ftp.docneighbors.org
Error: Fatal: unable to initialise SFTP on server: could not connect
Error: Could not connect to server
I noticed that FileZilla's SiteManager doesn't save port 22 setting after the error messages above appear.
As for PyDio, I am also confused. It is asking to login with ftp username and pw or DreamHost panel username and password? If I select sftp in PyDio, what port is needed?
Really appreciate your advice.
