If you have installed an SSH server on your Ubuntu machine, you can now connect to SFTP (SSH File Transfer Protocol).
To do this, go through the "File -> Site Manager" menu.
Note: For more information on using FileZilla, refer to our tutorial "Filezilla Client - Configuration and Use".
Then create a new site and enter the following information:
- Host : IP address or domain name of the SSH server.
- Port : 22 items or default
- Protocol : SFTP - SSH File Transfer Protocol
- Authentication type : Normal
- Login : A user available on the remote machine name. (The root user is allowed, but disable by default in Ubuntu)
- Password : The password of the account used.
At the first connection, FileZilla will display a message on the print server.
Click "OK" to ignore this warning. Since it is our first connection to the SSH server, FileZilla obviously not know the server and therefore you this warning.
During your next connections, never ignore the warning (see image below).
This warning informs you that the fingerprint of the SSH server has changed and it is likely that you are trying to connect to another server unintentionally. If you get one day this warning, cancel the connection to the server to avoid possible theft of your login and contact your network administrator.
This warning also occurs after reinstalling the operating system (in our case Ubuntu) or when a reinstallation of the SSH server.
Once connected to the server, you will automatically arrive in the personal file of the user with which you are connected. In our case, we're in the personal file of the user "root".
We must therefore return the root "\" your server to access your entire Ubuntu server.
If you have installed an Apache Web server and you want to manage files on your website, they are in the "/var/www" folder.
You will also find the html file default Apache is posted at: http://127.0.0.1/ (or http://localhost/) via your web browser.
