Freek Van der Herten has a new tutorial on setting up sftp on a Forge box:
Most projects are hosted on their separate DigitalOcean droplets provisioned by Forge. Even the smallest droplet has a whopping 20 GB of diskspace. An ftp-server is not installed by default. That’s probably a good thing because ftp is an insecure and antiquated protocol. In this post I’d like to explain how you can help a client that wants ftp-like functions.
Our goal is to give a client read and write access to a single directory. We will make sure that the client cannot go outside that directory. We’ll also prohibit the client from executing any shell commands.
