How to do FTP over SSL/TLS in FileZilla?
Posted by AccuWebHosting Support :: John D. on 25 March 2010 04:48 PM

For the security reasons, we recently enabled FTP over SSL/TLS on our Linux servers. Plain text authentication will no longer work on our Linux servers. For the Linux users we would suggest to use FTP client like FileZilla, CoreFTP  to upload their we contents.

Below mentioned are the instructions to upload files/folders using FileZilla FTP client:

Step 1: Create Site:

Go to File -> Site Manager -> New Site

Fill up following details:

Host: IP Address of our server

ServerType: FTPES - FTP over explicit TLS/SSL

Logontype: Normal

User: your FTP username

Password: Your FTP Password

Port number:  21

Click ‘Connect’ button.

Step 2: Dialog box with “Unknown Certificate”:

Once you click on connect button it will ask for certificate trust. Click the checkbox “Always Trust Certificate in future”

Click OK.

If you still not able to connect using provided steps then feel free to contact us via email at with the exact error message you may receive or directly initiate a chat request from our website
