6. In this settings window:

Replace “sftp” with “ftp

Replace “” with your host path

Replace “username” with your login

Uncomment the highlighted line by deleting the // in the beginning, and then enter your password instead of the second “password

In line 16 replace “/example/path/” with “/“, or type your root folder path there.

Your settings are now correct and you will be able to use your new FTP connection.  To do this, click File => SFTP/ FTP => Browse Server. I think you will be able to figure out the rest without instructions.

That is all it takes to set up an FTP connection with the SFTP plugin for Sublime Text 3! Thank you for reading.
