I work in a startup project on PhPStorm 8.0.3 . I'v been using the ftp settings to directly upload files on saving and it's been inredibly useful. Today I was unable to connect and when I asked my boss he just told me he will be adding more security to the server and I should now use some encryption setting. Everything he said was "require explicit FTP over TLS". While I am a programmer my knowledge of servers is nearly non-existent and have no idea what that means but didn't want to seem like the idiot (because everyone else seemed to know what that is) and just said I will do it. Right now I am turning to you guys here in need of help - what is that TLS thing and how do I enable it? If I try connecting to the server the old way (ftp username and password) the server just closes the connection.
Thanks for reading my question and hope you are able to help
