WMS – SFTP of web hosting within WMS

  WMS

SFTP accounts for web hostings within WMS apply similar rules as a classic web hosting Nolimit. This means that each time a web hosting is established, a master SFTP account is created, which is directed to the root directory of the web hosting. There, you will see subdirectories session, tmp and www.

You can also create any number of other SFTP accounts in the web hosting detail within WMS, and each of them can be directed either back to the web hosting root directory or to any subdirectory. Once the SFTP account is created, the system will automatically send you access by e-mail.

If you have deleted the e-mail with accesses or you want to set it up again, you can do so in the customer administration in the SFTP detail for a specific web hosting within the WMS service.
