Deploying applications on remote hosts, managing their contents, and synchronizing with deployed applications are supported via the Remote Hosts Access bundled plugin, which is by default enabled. If not, activate it in the Plugins page of the Settings dialog box.
The term "deployment" in this context denotes simple copying files and folders to a Web server.
Moreover, you can suppress uploading or downloading specific files or entire folders by excluding them from deployment.
Finally, you can optimize you workflow by configuring content roots so specific folders are not involved in indexing, which significantly saves project indexing time.
