Update wordpress file via dreamweaver sftp

Posted July 4, 2014 3.3k views

I have followed this tutorial

I can acces to wordpress and it works but I can’t update files with dreamweaver. I configure a site and it connect to the server and download files, but when I edit and upload it show me an error.

I have to say that in the tutorial, in the steps that I have to disallow Additional Apache Password Prompt for Admin Areas, I can’t safe my changes because it denied and tell me “are you root?”

The same problem if I try to install myphpadmin.

How can I do?

“it show me an error.” we would need to know what error …

As for the other stuff, you need to type sudo before the commend to change the config or install phpmyadmin

Thanks for your answer. It solve the issue of installing phpmyadmin and admin additional password but I continue having the same issue with sftp.

I can connect to server, download files and edit but I can upload the edited files. The error that show dreamweaver is in spanish but it is something like this “file activity incomplete. Not found 1 file or directory”.

I have found the problem.. I had to give the ownership of the directory to my user:

sudo chown username:www-data /var/www -R
sudo chmod g+w /var/www -R
