Adding SSH FTP Replication Targets

  • See Publishing Prerequisites for details.
  • The replication target must be added. See Adding Replication Targets for details.
  • The administrator must have at least one of the following:
    • Valid values provided by a subject matter expert for required fields.
    • Access to the SSH FTP server.

System administrators can configure SSH FTP (File Transfer Protocol using Secure Shell encryption for security) replication in publishing targets. When performing replication during publish, Ingeniux CMS copies the published files using SSH FTP (i.e., SFTP or Secure FTP).
To set up an SSH FTP replication target:
  1. Expand the SSH FTP replication target in the Replication tab.

  2. Configure the following fields:
    The SSH FTP replication target uses similar basic settings to those for an FTP replication target. Unlike FTP, this target requires SFTP server authorization.
    NameThe name of the replication target.
    Description (optional)The description of the replication target.
    SFTP AuthorizationSelect one of the following items from the drop-down list:
    • Username/Password: Provide the password in the Password field.
    • Private Key: Provide the absolute path to the private key file (e.g., C:/keyfile/key.ppk) in the Key Location field..
    • Private Key/Password: Provide the absolute path to the private key file (e.g., C:/keyfile/key.ppk) in the Key Location field and the passphrase in the Password field.
    To verify keys, we recommend using a key generator like PuTTY (you can download the key generator here).
    UsernameThe user name for establishing the SSH FTP session.
    Root PathThe replication location on the server. The root path begins at the root of the SSH FTP site and uses forward slashes (/) as delimiters.
    PortThe SSH FTP port number.

Next Steps: Choose one of the following.

  • Click Save in the top right corner of the publishing target view.
  • Go to Advanced Settings to configure FTP options, exempt locations, additional locations, cleanup exclusions, and custom commands for the replication target.
