How to host a bot with files from Visual Studio Code?

Hi, I am having trouble with hosting my bot using a digitalocean droplet. I have the files on VSC and on GitHub but for security reasons, I can only have certain files on GitHub which means that my bot will not work with the files there. Could anybody help? Thank you.

What you could do is use SFTP to upload the files in questions directly to the server.

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

Alternatively, you could use SSH to access the server and make any changes to those files directly on the server.
