    Currently I login via SFTP, is there any way to configure this in the options of xenforo?

    FTP is used to install XenForo. What are you trying to do?

    Hey Jake,
    I am setting up an addon so i can use it to upgrade addons easier. But I do everything over SFTP. I use a LEMP stack, which is a pain to setup FTP.

    For support relating to an add-on, you'll need to post in the add-on's thread.

    The addon uses the ftp information provided in the ftp area of xenforo. Thats what I am trying to figure out, since I do not use FTP and I use SFTP, how can I use the creditals of sftp to work?

    That was roughly what I was trying to say: there's not "FTP area" of XenForo. Those would be options added by the add-on.

    changing it to sftp:// in the host field will work, assuming this is Jon's upgrade add-on
