Unable to change File System Path in SSH Workspace


#1

I’ve created an SSH workspace into an AWS Ubuntu instance successfully.
I am unable to change the Workspace folder to /var/www/ so that I can easily work on my web files. When I try to change the initial path in my preferences

“Project directory does not exist or is not writable”

What are my next steps to being able to work the file sin the correct folder?

This can happen if /var/www/ is not writable by the linux user which is used to login via ssh.
You can either log in as a different linux user or give access to /var/www/ to the first user.
