    how to edit wp-config.php in godaddy shared wordpress hosting?

    Hello All,

     

    I want to stop debugging for my website. Tech support asked me to modified wp-config.php file in SFTP.

     

    But don't find any help how to edit the file. Do I have to download FTP client?  Or I can do it on a web browser?

    Please anyone can tell me the step to do this?

     

    Thanks in advance

    HI @hardhatengineer

     

    Thank you for your post. In order to edit via SFTP, you will need to download or have access to an FTP client, such as filezilla. 

     

    One you have the FTP client installed use the following guide to find the settings to connect via SFTP

     

    Upload files with SFTP

    Once connected you will most likely find the wp-config.php file in the following path:

    //wp-config.php   (first level of directory)

     

    Hope this helps!
