Issue

Dreamweaver 2017 does not connect to the SFTP server, and you see the following error message: "Failed to Read the contents of XML Resource: IDD_SSH_KEY_CHANGE_DIALOG".

Solution

  1. Close the Dreamweaver application.

  2. Go to the following location:

    • Windows: C:\Users\[user name]\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\Dreamweaver CC xxxx\en_US\Configuration
    • macOS: ~/Library/Application Support/Adobe/Dreamweaver CC xxxx/en_US/Configuration

    Here, xxxx is the version of Dreamweaver. For example, if you are using Dreamweaver 2017 running on Windows, then your folder location reads:

    C:\Users\[user name]\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\Dreamweaver CC 2017\en_US\Configuration

  3. Right-click the ssh_hosts file, and rename this file. For example, ssh_hosts_old.

  4. Relaunch Dreamweaver and connect to your SFTP server.
