The SSH File Transfer Protocol (SFTP) is a network protocol used to securely transfer files from your computer to server and vice versa. You’re reading this because you might want to edit wp-config.php or upload new themes/plugins to wp-content folder. For that, you need an FTP client with SFTP support. Most modern FTP-clients also support transfer over SFTP.
Install SFTP client
- Download and install (S)FTP client to your computer, ie. FileZilla or Cyberduck.
- Click “Open Connection” (Or similar in other clients)
- Fill in your SFTP-details and click Connect. At Pilvia, you’ll find your site's details easily at one central place. (See the image.)
The files of your website are located inside the "site" -folder. Simply drag and drop or edit the files you want:
You can use text editors like Visual Studio Code, Atom or Sublime Text when you edit files.
