Manage files via SSH or SFTP

You can use any file manager you find easy to work with. A file manager is software that allows to easily and securely handle files via SFTP, namely:

  • Add and edit files on the server
  • Manage directories
  • Upload images
  • Create and unzip archives

Connect to the server via SFTP (Port 22). It’s more secure and gives you more abilities than outdated FTP.

Directory with projects

Projects can be found in the following directory: /srv/projects/PROJECT_DIR

How to: Connect via SFTP

We are going to use Cyberduck (free). Perform the same steps if you use another software.

Get access details


We recommend providing personal accounts for each developer. This will increase the security of your project and will proselytize incidents related to developer actions. How to create extra SSH/SFTP accounts

For example, you want to use access details from the Developer account created, where you find Connection IP, Port(usually 22), Username and Password


Create a new conection

Use the SFTP protocol and Port 22 if it is not selected by default.



You can now manage your files: upload, open and edit.


Save the created connection for quicker access next time.
