The magic isn’t happening

I thought, that this app will allow me to work on my iPad, but it doesn’t seems so.

Firstly, I can’t connect to my VPS with precisely correct login and password. It’s annoying but still.

And today I found myself unable to open php-files! What the hack?!



Textastic thinks that the .php file you are trying to open is a binary file. They also do all seem to have about the same size. So It looks like like used the "Open…" command to open a folder from a cloud service like iCloud Drive and the files have not been downloaded yet. Unfortunately this isn't supported in the current version of Textastic.


From the manual at https://www.textasticapp.com/v7/manual/integration_other_apps/external_files_folders.html:


Opening external folders only works when the files and folders are stored locally on the device. This is typically true for Git clients and the “On my iPad/iPhone” location, but also for apps like Documents by Readdle.
It does not work when folders are stored in the cloud. For cloud providers like iCloud Drive or Microsoft OneDrive, you can only open individual files, not folders.


If your files are stored in iCloud Drive, I would suggest to move them to Textastic's iCloud Drive folder. Then they are available in the "iCloud" location in Textastic.

Regarding connecting to your VPS: How do you try to connect? What error message do you get?
