replacing codes in website's files on server

Post by Bob83 » Wed Nov 12, 2014 5:25 am

I just purchased your program to help me make some major changes in my website. Will I be able to directly find and replace lines of code in the files that are on my host's server or is the operation of this tool limited to what is only on my personal computer? It would be nice to be able to change these remote files without having to download each of them all over again after they are revised.

It cannot change files directly on web server. Because it's not the
right way to do the things.
Normally you need to have local copy of your files on your computer.
You also need to use version control system like Subversion via
TortoiseSVN.
Then you work on your local files. Do version control.
And then you synchronize your files with special web synchronization
software. This software often use secure connection. So the files are
encrypted during transfer to web server etc. So it does not make any
sense to delegate this work to Advanced Find and Replace.

Roman,
OK. I understand that this program will not enable me to directly revise the files that are on the server for my website. I assume that it will enable me to make some batch changes in the files that are on my personal computer. And once those changes are made and these files are saved on my computer, I assume that I will be able to use my file transfer software program to download each of these revised files into the public_html directory for my website on my host's server. Am I right about these matters? I am going to try to learn how to use your tool to improve the files for my website. According to your promotional material, it should be able to help me with my local files. Thanks for your response to my inquiry.
Bob
