  • Creating Application Credentials
  • Updating Application Credentials


Application Credentials give SFTP (by default, you can enable SSH too) access to a specific application in a server. Account owners or Team Members with the proper privileges can create them. Following steps will explain how you can create application credentials and update existing ones.

Step 1: Select Application

Log into the Cloudways Platform with your credentials (account owner or Team Member). Click on Applications in the top menu bar and then select your target application from the list (the one you want to give access to).

Team Member Select App WP

Step 2: Application Credentials

Go to the Access Details tab. Here you can add new Application Credentials (just type a username and password). Account owners can create multiple sets of credentials (e.g. for multiple collaborators), Team Members can create only one set of credentials for each application they have access to.

If you want to change or update your application credentials, just click on the Edit (pencil) icon. 

To delete a set of credentials, just click the Delete (trash bin) icon and confirm.

    This is great, but rather than create a link, it seems to duplicate the whole folder? This is obviously not very good for HD space?
