Note: This step is only done once, if you have already created your SSH keys, and added the key to your Templ.io panel, you can skip to part 3 of the file access guide: Configure SFTP Client (Windows).


Add your SSH key to the Templ.io panel

Step 1 - Copy your Public key.

Under "Public key" in PuTTY, right click and Select All, and then Copy the text (your public key). This is used by the Templ.io Panel to authenticate with your private key, stored safely on your computer.

You can now paste your key in the Templ.io panel using the CTRL + V, to do that, open the Templ.io Panel if you haven't already, then click on File Access> Access Key > Create.

  1. Give your Access key a name, mine is called "Karl Windows" (My name and my device).
  2. Paste the key in the key field. If you need to copy they SSH key to your clipboard again, go back to PuTTY and copy the key.
  3. Add to All - I recommend checking this box, so your key will work with all your websites, in case you have more than one.
  4. If you want your key to work with a single website, uncheck "Add to all" and then select your website in the dropdown list.


When you are done, it should look similar to this:

Click Continue, and you are done with the steps in this part. Next up is how to set up a SFTP Client and link it with your Templ.io site.
