All AzuraCast Docker installations come with a built-in SFTP server that allows you to easily connect to your media directory, upload and move files using software of your choice.
Creating SFTP Users
Media sidebar menu for a given station, you will see an entry labeled
SFTP Users. Click this to view existing users and the connection details for connecting to your server via an SFTP client of your choice.
By default, the SFTP service listens externally on port 2022. If there is something else using this port or you want to change it for any other reason, you can edit the
.env file on your host machine and add or modify this line:
Connecting to SFTP
Here’s a small list of FTP clients you can use that are known to work with AzuraCast’s SFTP system.
- Filezilla - Windows, MacOS and Linux 32 bit & 64 bit

A more exhaustive list can be found here.
Mounting as a Directory on Your Computer

- Mountain Duck - Windows and MacOS
- ExpanDrive - Windows, MacOS and Linux
- SSHFS for Linux
- SSHFS for Windows
