Additional FTP Accounts - Allow SFTP Access

Hestia CP 1.3.1
Ubuntu 18.04


Currently when you create an additional FTP user for a domain through the UI it creates a user which only has FTP access. Attempting to connect via SFTP gives the error “Authentication Failed”.

Can this be changed to allow the additional FTP users SFTP access?


Hi @fsgroup

Thanks for the request, there is already a PR in our github repo which expands this feature request. We’ll review and implement it for the next release.
