FAQ - How to setup my SFTP

DoliCloud is an open hosting solution. This means that, you can view, modify and download the program and data files. One of the interfaces that can keep control of your data is Secure FTP (SFTP). SFTP is a convenient and secure means of accessing the source code of your instance. WinSCP and FileZilla are very common SFTP clients for Windows. However, any SFTP client is a good choice. This page describes how to setup your SFTP client.
