Dreamweaver for Mac - An FTP Error Occurred Cannot Make Connection to Host

Details

If you were once able to connect to your SFTP server from Dreamweaver but now suddenly you cannot and the error message "An FTP Error Occurred - Cannot Make Connection to Host" then the likely cause is that the servers ssh host key changed.

The problem is the SSH host is different (perhaps the server hardware was updated) and therefore the SSH host key is different. 

To resolve the issue, the simplest solution is to remove the ssh_hosts file, and the next time you use Dreamweaver it will be recreated for you.

For Mac, the ssh_hosts file is in the following location:

/Users/user.name/Library/Application Support/Adobe/Dreamweaver CS5.5/en_US/Configuration/ssh_hosts
