yahoo small business web hosting

#1 Post by urbanjim » 2013-03-08 05:19

I cannot seem to figure out how to log in to yahoo webhosting. Yahoo said they have changed to sftp. But nothing I have tried have allowed me to log in. The messages are: Cleartext sessions not allowed. Timed out. Could not connect to server. Etc.
Any ideas?

I'm pretty sure they switched to FTPS, big difference to SFTP.

You just have to set the Encryption dropdown for that server in FileZilla Site Manager to ''Require xxxxx FTP over TLS'' instead of ''Plain FTP''. Try Explicit first, only if that won't work try Implicit.

FTP connection problems? Do yourself a favor and read Network Configuration.

Thanks I had the same issue. I did not see the encryption dropdown because I had selected sftp. Switching it back to plain ftp and the encryption dropdown appears. Thanks.
