My server only allows SFTP not FTP.

I'm getting an error that I can't figure out. I've got a successful backup tar file sitting on the server. It is located at:


so I'm guessing the XCloner wants open this file, and the access some scripts with it ? But I get this FTP upload failed message... I'm very sure I've configured the username and password correctly and done some tests. My server only allows SFTP not FTP tho - is this the problem perhaps?

If only SFTP is allowed, then yes, that is an issue as it only works with ftp and ftps, please check this restore wiki /wiki/index.php/Restore_Backup#Restore_Backup_.E2.80.93_Manually for alternative restore methods
