There are the following main ways to synchronize project files with their copies on the local or remote server:
- Manually, through a menu command.
Automatically, every time a file is updated.
In this case, the default server configuration is used.
You can additionally configure this upload method to have only manually saved files uploaded.
- Automatically after the changes to the files are checked in to your version control repository.
In this section:

In the Upload changed files automatically to the default server drop-down list, specify when you want PyCharm to upload changed files:
