How to allow Apache web site docs folder and subfolders to be modified remotely
Posted on 2011-09-30
We have a CentOS server setup recently & it's running Apache. If I ssh and log into the console, I can edit any /var/www/html docs that I need to if I use sudo to do the edits.
However, I would like to use Dreamweaver on my local system to do my edits, then ftp them over directly. I'm able to successfully connect via Dreamweaver, and can do the edits, but since I don't have a way to "sudo" via Dreamweaver (unless there is a way???), I can't actually edit anything.
What do I need to change on the server to allow me to be able to make my edits remotely via Dreamweaver (over secure ftp)?
I do this routinely on a hosted web site that I have that runs on some flavor of linux, but I have no idea how the company sets this up on their end to allow such direct edits to the web files.
