One of the great things about Flywheel is that there is no need to share SFTP usernames and passwords with your clients or other people that collaborate on sites with you. Everyone on Flywheel logs into the SFTP server using their own personal username and password, and from there they have access to all of the sites that they own or are a collaborator on.
To access your site’s files via SFTP, configure your SFTP client using the following settings:
|Mode||SFTP (not regular FTP)|
|Username||Your Flywheel username (not your email address). Find your Flywheel username here.|
|Password||Your Flywheel password|
If you have forgotten your Flywheel password, you can easily reset it online here. If you have more questions or issues with your password, check out this Flywheel help article article: I’ve forgotten my SFTP password! Can you reset it for me?
