Using FTP | Filezilla Software

Overview


FTP (or File Transfer Protocol) is a popular way to transfer files between computers over the Internet. Since almost every web host allows FTP access to their servers, it’s also a great way to upload files up to a website.

 

Access FTP


In terms to access your FTP Quakevision will provide you the below :

  1. Hosting server
  2. Username
  3. Password

 

FTP Client


You will need an FTP client. If you don’t have a favorite FTP client already, we recommend FileZilla. It is free, simple, and works with both Mac OS X and Windows.
You can download FileZilla from this link. filezilla-project.org by clicking on Download FileZilla Client.

 

Uploading files with FileZilla


1. Start Filezilla and go to File > Site Manager.

3. Once connected, you’ll see two panes: the left one (first image below) shows the files on your computer, and the right one (second image below) shows the files currently on the web server. Using the pane on the right, browse to the folder to which you want to upload your files.

4. Using the left pane, select the files you want to upload and drag them over to the right pane. Filezilla will now begin uploading the files to your web host.
