Accessing Files on Web Servers
On this page:
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 JetBrains Rider 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 Configuring Synchronization with a Web Server.
Access to servers is controlled through server configurations of the type FTP, FTPS, SFTP, or Local or Mounted Folder.
