Simplifying Website Updates

Unlike hosting a website on IPFS using Fleek, website updates on Storj require the deleting/uploading of new files in the Storj bucket. Using the browser-based file management system makes this difficult because it cannot upload folders, only single files.

The solution to this problem is to use Filezilla. Filezilla recently began supporting Storj's network protocol. You can follow the guide here on how to connect to your Storj bucket using an Access Grant key. Once connected, simply upload the new website files to the directory and viola, your latest website updates are deployed instantly!

For reference, this post was created using Publii, saved locally, then uploaded via Filezilla to the Storj bucket.
