Hi there @emahmi,

By default, your website files should be stored at the /var/www/html folder. Of course, this directory might be different depending on your setup.

To edit your files you could either use SFTP as described here:

Or you could edit your files via SSH, as described here:

Hope that this helps! Regards, Bobby
