I need to know is there a way to to modify my html website files on the server directly like a control panel and file manager? i don’t want to upload the whole website every time i edit a page
Hi, @rawad.asfar. There is no way modify the files directly because of atomic and immutable deploys concepts discussed here:
My recommendation would be to use the Netlify CLI tool to deploy your local working directory instead and there is more information about how to to there here:
If there are other questions about this, please let us know.
thanks for your reply
i was hoping to find an easy way to update my website since it only has static pages
Hi, @rawad.asfar. All files must be uploaded for every deploy. However, the CLI tool works with our API in a more advanced way than the “Drag and Drop” method does. The CLI tool will upload only the changed files.
While there would need to be time invested to learn to use the CLI tool to deploy, it will be more reliable than using “Drag and Drop”. If you take the time to learn to use the CLI tool to deploy, it may “pay for itself” in the time spent learning to use it by saving you time deploying in the long run.
If you have questions about using the CLI to deploy, we’ll be here to assist.
