Access files on web servers
Once you have set up synchronization between your local application sources and the application sources on a server, you can create new folders, move, rename, and delete existing files and folders. You can also compare files and folders on the server with their local versions.
For the sake of simplicity, any file or folder in your CLion project is called local and any file or folder on the server is called remote, even if the server is actually installed on your machine. For details, see Synchronization with web server.
CLion uses server configurations to control access to servers (FTP, FTPS, SFTP, WebDAV, or Local or Mounted Folder).
Access a remote server
Open the Remote Host tool window by choosing from the main menu.
Select the required deployment server from the list. The tool window shows a tree view of files and folders under the server root. If no relevant server is available in the list, click , and in the Deployment dialog that opens configure access to the required server.
From the Remote Host tool window, you can right-click files and directories to create, move, rename, and delete files and folders on the server, as well as upload and download the desired items.
