SFTP Troubleshooting

Modifications made to your site using SFTP can cause your site to malfunction.

Troubleshooting steps

If your website experiences issues following SFTP file modifications, here are some steps you can take:

  1. Backup – Before attempting any fixes, make sure you have a recent backup of your website’s files. If not, create one now to prevent potential data loss.
  2. Identify the Changes – Try to remember the changes you made using SFTP. This could include removal of a file, alterations to a code, or renaming a directory.
  3. Revert Changes – If possible, revert the changes you made using SFTP. If a file was deleted, try to recover it. If a file was edited, revert it to its previous state.
  4. Consult a Developer – If the problem persists, or you’re uncertain about the changes made, it would be best to consult with a web developer. They can help identify and rectify any coding or structural issues.
