Welcome to this instructional guide on how to access your Minecraft server files securely and efficiently using SFTP (Secure File Transfer Protocol). This method works seamlessly with HyperPanel and allows you to manage your files using FTP clients like FileZilla and WinSCP.

Step 1: Download an FTP Client

Begin by downloading an FTP client. We recommend FileZilla. Simply download the installer from their website and follow the installation process.

Filezilla Host, User, Password, Port bar.

Step 2: Navigate to Your Server on HyperPanel

Visit HyperPanel and click on the name of your Minecraft server.
