Using the SFTP plugin

So I purchased the plugin just 20min ago. I'm trying to use it connecting with my SFTP client... But every time I try using SFTP under port 22 with the FTP credentials that were created it keeps acting as the credentials is not a match or existing. I then deleted the FTP account thinking maybe there is some kind of collision between switching from ftp to sftp but still nothing. I also can connect to the server using the normal port 21 with the credentials I had.

I'm not sure if this is how the plugin intended use was or I'm just being stupid.

I'm running centos 7.5.1804

SFTP Chroot is not working with advanced ftp accounts. You should using credentials of vestacp user.
Choose "nologin" in the settings of user and try to connect with credentials of vestacp user.

Thats what I was actually thinking when I was initially testing. I should have added that in my original post... even though I use my vestacp account (account to manage my sites not the admin) it says the samething! I tested the username and password I'm using in the vesta panel login box works fine. Not using sftp on port 22.
