I just set-up a VPS and installed Joomla. Now I need to update.

When I click on the update button, and I try to do it through FTP I get this error message

JFTP: :connect: Could not connect to host ' sftp://XXX.XXX.XXX.XX ' on port ' 21 '
File Checksum Failed

I have valid credentials set in my configuration.php for $ftp_ host, port, user, pass and root I have set to public $ftp_root = '/root';

What do I need to change so that I can update my site?

I can connect using the sftp IP and credentials through FileZilla no issue.

  • sftp is at port 22 and ftp is at port 21. – Amit Ray May 29 '20 at 8:06

You can just use "Write files directly"
