I have a wordpress application hosted in webfaction and I would like to change the language of the theme. In the wordpress documentation I've read that I need to create a folder "wp-content/languages" and upload there .mo .po files with the translations. How do I create this folder and upload the files?

Thanks!!

Your SFTP client should have the ability to create a folder (if you're unsure which to use, I would suggest FileZilla).

First, connect to the server via SFTP, navigate to your application's "wp-content" directory (~/webapps/app_name/wp-content, where app_name represents the name of your application), and then create a directory named "languages" and upload the files.

Hope that helps!

Thanks ryans.

I usually connect with SSH via SSH key. The pass I must use in FileZilla is the SSH key? Do I need a different passwords for SSH and SFTP?

Thanks!!

Your SFTP password is the same as your SSH password.

If you want to use key-based authentication, then the following URLs should help:

Hope that helps!
