Steps to Follow 👣
Authorizing WP Umbrella's IP Address
- Authorize our IP Address: 184.108.40.206 - You can whitelist our IP address using the SSH Authorization tool in O2Switch cPanel located in the tools section.
Providing FTP Credentials to WP Umbrella
- Use the main FTP account of the server, not a secondary account - O2Switch does not allow secure connections for secondary FTP accounts. Hence, you need to enter your main FTP account credentials (host, user, password, port) on WP Umbrella. Please note that this information is fully encrypted for your security.
