Create FTP on MediaTemple

A number of our tools require some level of access to your web server. This can be achieved via FTP, SFTP~ or SSH protocols. The preferred protocol will always be SFTP or SSH but sometimes, its only offered for a fee, or the host is unfamiliar with how to create these access points.

We’ve compiled this quick tutorial on the creation of an FTP account specifically for MediaTemple users.

A File Transfer Protocol (FTP) account will allow us to access your website’s files. The FTP credentials we need to connect to your site are:

  • FTP server (host)
  • Port (default is 21)
  • Username
  • Password
