SSH SFTP Updater Support


Keeping your WordPress install up-to-date and installing plugins in a hassle-free manner is not so easy if your server uses SFTP. “SSH SFTP Updater Support” for WordPress uses phpseclib to remedy this deficiency.


  1. Upload the files to the /wp-content/plugins/ssh-sftp-updater-support directory
  2. 워드프레스의 ‘플러그인’ 메뉴에서 플러그인을 활성화하세요.


Years later, still working great

Plain FTP simply isn’t secure enough for everyday use. SFTP is great, but WordPress can make it a bit of a pain. This plugin makes it dirt simple, and works perfectly despite not having been updated in two years.

it works!

I was fighting this problem for 3 hours. Installed the plugin and suddenly everything works. Great job!
