If your are developing web applications, you my use an editor like visual studio code. How can you upload changes you made in your local files automatically to a webserver using (s)ftp?
Download and install WinSCP. Log in using your credentials. Browse on the left file browser to your local folder where your webapp is stored. Browse on the right file browser to the folder on your webserver where the same webapp is stored on the server. Click on the menu bar on “Commands” -> “Keep remote Directory up to Date…”, select your options and press start. Now you can change any files in the local folder and all changes will be synchronized automatically to the webserver.


There are actually two ways of handling this issue. The first one is for less tech savvy users, and it goes through opening the System Preferences/ Security and finding there a button saying: Open this app anyway. Afterwards you are prompted to enter your administrator password and that is it.
The second way is over Terminal, by typing in the following command: sudo spctl --master-disable and subsequently entering your administrator password again.
