Visual Studio Code/simple-ftp Question

Is there a way to set it so that when I ftp files to the server from VS Code using simple-ftp that they can go to the same file on the server relative to the file they are on inn my local machine or should I use a different upload utility?  If I need to use a different upload utility I am open to suggestions, as long as it works from within VC Code.

Hmmm... that has never worked with FTP in the last 35 years.  WebMatrix may have been using 'WebDav'.  Or even attaching the web server as a mapped drive if it all belongs to the same organization.  Or maybe WebMatrix was just 'smarter'.

All versions of FTP require you to explicitly select the directory where you want to upload a file.  If it is several levels deep, you have to select each one in sequence.

Hmmm...when I worked with WebMatrix I simply did a right-click and selected "Upload to Server" or something like that and it updated the correct page...but they took that utility away from me.  :(
