Learn how to use Couchdrop to transfer files to and from Filebase using SCP, SFTP and Rsync.

What is Couchdrop?

Couchdrop is a cloud SCP, SFTP, FTP and Rsync server, built specifically for the cloud.

We have partnered with Couchdrop to offer customers native Filebase integration. This integration allows you to directly transfer files to and from Filebase using SCP, SFTP and Rsync with Couchdrop.


1. Log into Couchdrop by visiting Click on Storage on the left navigation menu

If you have not used Couchdrop yet, you will not see any Storage Buckets. You will need to create a new Storage Bucket for Filebase. You can create as many storage buckets as desired, and associate different permissions and paths for each.

2. Click 'Add Storage'

You will be presented with options to configure a range of storage buckets, for this article select Filebase.

Here you need to specify a destination path, permission mode and bucket type. The path is what identifies this specific storage bucket when you are downloading or uploading files. For our example, we will leave it as "/" and we will configure the bucket type as "Filebase".

3. Configure Filebase details

Filebase also requires the configuration of the following details:

  • Your Filebase Access Key

  • Your Filebase Secret Key

  • Your Filebase Bucket Name

Once configured, click Save Settings and the integration is complete.

You can begin transferring files to and from Filebase with Couchdrop.
