How can I move files from my computer to my VPS (Linux)

The root user of a VPS can upload files via SFTP if they do not have FTP users. Make this a connection on port 22 instead of 21 in your FTP program.

Note that the rights to these files then can only be changed by the root user.

  1. Open your FTP client

    2. For USERNAME: put in your root username
    3. For PASSWORD: put in your password
    4. For PORT: put in ’22’
  2. If a question pops up, select the option, that you trust the connection.Port 22
