FTP Setup – FileZilla

FTP Setup – FileZilla


FileZilla is an FTP program for file uploading and downloading to and from your FTP site, server, or host. The program lets you transfer files and navigate among folders, Web sites, and your computer. This software enables you to perform multiple file transfers simultaneously.  A FileZilla tutorial can be found here.

Install FileZilla 3.3.3 for Windows 2000, XP, Vista, and Windows 7.

Open the FileZilla application.

Host = If you have a domain account (i.e. www.mysite.com) you will want to enter your address in the format ftp.mysite.com.
Username = cPanel login
Password = cPanel password
Click Quickconnect.

Your files will now be listed in the browser window. You can then drag and drop the files both to and from this window to copy files to and from the server. If you are using this site for a home page, you will want to ensure that you have the page named either index.htm or index.html in the root folder.
