How to manage files using SFTP

In order to access SFTP you will need a third party program to connect to our servers. We recommend FileZilla as it is straightforward to use and has all the features you will need.

NOTE: All other SFTP client software will work as well.
Attention mobile users: FileZilla will not work for you. For apple devices, use FTPManager and for Android devices use Admin Hands

Attention, this is third party software, Skynode is not liable for your agreements to other service(s) privacy terms and data handling.

Step 1: Make sure you have your SFTP software installed

Step 2: Open up the software and use the details found under Server Panel -> SFTP on the panel to log in.

This is what the information will look like to login with. Your Connection Address is Host, Username is the username and your password is the same as your password using when logging into the panel. You do not need to enter a port, if you entered the entire connection address, the port will fill itself.

Step 3: On the bottom right you will see all your server files. To download all your server files you can just download the folder data. To reset your server, highlight data and press delete.

You are now seeing all your files from the panel on your client. There are many things you can do from here. To upload files, you first find the folder/file you want to upload in the bottom left box. Once found you can simply drag the file into the file data, and the client will upload all the files. Make sure it is in the data folder and where you want to upload it on to your server. This does work for folders, it will upload everything from inside the folder for you instead of you doing it one by one. The same works for downloading, just find the folder you want to download it from and drag it from your server files to your computer's files.
