Hello, @jibranjibby2

If you have access to the account and the droplet/server where the website is hosted in general you can easily modify the website.

Keep in mind that if this is not the case and the account is under the name of the former developer you’ll need to contact the developer and ask to give you access to the account. Your other option will be to contact our support team and they will try to help you with your account issue.

Hope that this helps!

      If you have access to the droplet then you’re good to go. You can make the code changes locally and then upload them to the droplet using FTP or make the code modification directly on the droplet.

      However if you’re not familiar with file modification under Linux you can check this article:

      If you are new to working with Linux systems, you may be overwhelmed by the prospect of controlling an operating system from the command line. In this guide, we will attempt to get you up to speed with the basics. This guide will not cover everything you need to know to effectively use a Linux system. However, it should give you a good jumping-off point for future exploration.
