Modifications made to your site using SFTP can cause your site to malfunction.
If your website experiences issues following SFTP file modifications, here are some steps you can take:
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
