UNABLE TO OPEN THE SUBSYSTEM FOR SFTP


Problem:

When trying to sftp:

Unable to open the subsystem for SFTP.
The most likely reason is that the server does not support this subsystem.
Please contact the server’s administrator for further information.

Solution:

# locate sftp-server
/usr/libexec/sftp-server

## Edit sftp server line in /etc/ssh/sshd_config
# service sshd reload

Close all ssh sessions and try to sftp again
