    Hi,

    The control panel only seems to allow you to use standard FTP which is very insecure. How do I set this up to use SFTP instead?

    Thanks

    You should be able to use TLS rather than sFTP, which is more secure as it doesn't require a shell environment to function and still uses encryption. Filezilla and most FTP clients support TLS.
