How do I upload or sync files to Spaces?

Posted September 3, 2019 2.9k views

I want to upload files to spaces but I am not a developer.. I log in to my digital ocean account and then do everything manually.

Is there some sort of FTP access available to do transfers on spaces?
Can I have a dropbox folder synced to the root of my spaces folder… so that whatever changes I make on the dropbox folder is synced to the the spaces?

Please do advise.

You could use Cyberduck for example, here’s a step by step guide on how to do that:

Hope that this helps!

  • Except the cyberduck what other tool I can use to upload files

    • Hi there,

      There are quite a few options:

      • You could upload files directly via the DigitalOcean Control Panel
      • You could use the s3cmd command-line tool
      • If you need to upload files via your web application, you could use a specific library depending on the language that you are using
      • Another option is to use OwnCloud if you are planning to use the spaces for storing static files
      • If you are specifically looking for a Cyberduck Alternative, you could try out FileZilla for example or take a look at those alternatives here as well.

      It really depends on your requirements.
