I have a VPS account and would like to set up and use SFTP for all the cpanel accounts created. How is this possible? I read on a post somewhere that for SFTP the cpanel user must also have SSH but I can't see a way that I can activate that for all my accounts.

Hello Amparose,

Thanks for the question about setting up and using SFTP on your VPS. Yes, it is possible to setup SFTP access for all accounts. Each user requiring access would need to have their IP address added to the firewall. The instructions for setting up SFTP can be found in this tutorial. It will also show you how to setup the account to use SSH. If you have any further questions, please let us know.

Kindest regards,
Arnel C.
