SFTP is for giving secure-ftp-access to users who also have secure-
shell-access (SSH), so I don't think it's appropriate for your case.
FTP-logins can be totally separated from shell-logins (with a separate
passwords-database or even virtual users on some ftp-servers), so I
think you better go on with your FTP-configuration, but then use a SSL-
aware FTP-client to make secured connections to your server, not SFTP.
