I am a WordPress user and I made a website using WordPress and I got the paid hosting and paid domain from godaddy.

I wanted to do the SEO for my website. After seeing many tutorials most of them recommended yoast SEO plugin to me.

I clicked on the install button for the Yoast SEO plugin and suddenly a dialog box appeared asking me for my SFTP or FTP credentials but Godaddy hosting had provided me with ftps credentials and not SFTP or FTP so how should I continue?

Is this happening for all plugins you install or just Yoast. Usually it can be solved by adding this line in wp-config.php


FTP or sFTP are same. Just use Port 22 to make it sftp and for FTP port is 21

  • This is just happening for Yoast and I am neither using FTP or sFTP I am using FTPS
