My web hosting service only provides SFTP access, not FTP or FTPS. Is sftp:// (SSH file transfer protocol) supported?

    Oh, I don't think SFTP is supported, at least not in the current FTP provider implementation. Maybe you can install some additional FTP client to support it.

    Seems like SFTP is becoming much more common. Same with one of my hosts. Probably a good thing to look at implementing...

    Right. Seems it could be implemented with this library:
