Accessing Ghost directory through UI


I recently migrated to Digital Ocean to host my Ghost blog. Is there any way to access, edit and view my Ghost folder content through UI? Right now I am using SCP and command line tools to access them, but I think UI access would be much better for uploading and downloading individual files.

I appreciate any update on this request.

Hi there,

One option would be to use an SFTP client like FileZilla, that way you would not have to run scp for each individual file but would be able to use the FileZilla GUI and transfer your files easily from the server to your local machine and vice versa:

You can follow the steps on how to do that here:

Hope that this helps!
