filezilla

FileZilla is a free FTP (File Transfer Protocol) client. FTP is a method for download or uploading files to a server. FTP works in a few different ways, and has unsecure, and secure protocols within.

Today though were just going to mainly show you how to use FileZilla so you can upload some files to your server. We will be demonstrating using the dedicated server this site is hosted on.

This guide also assumes you have FileZilla installed. If you don’t than you can download it here: Download FileZilla. It is pretty self explanatory on how to install it.

How to use FileZilla

1) Locate Site Manager

First thing you will want to do is simply add your site! Before you can do that though you will need to open up the site manager. It is located in the upper left hand corner. If your having trouble just refer to the below picture.

2) Add Your Site!

Now I’ve grayed a few things out, but I’ll explain it all! When you open the site manager you will see what you see below. You will want to click “New Site” and a new one will populate the list on the left. Name your site so that you can identify it later. The settings on the right side are the settings associated with the currently highlighted site on list located on the left hand side.

The settings are pretty easy. Host is simply ftp.yoursitename.com really that is all there is to it. Than for Logon Type you will want to make sure it says normal (it says Anonymous by default). After that enter your cPanel username and your cPanel password. If all is well hit connect!

site-managerIf you happen to get any errors it will most likely be because of an incorrectly typed username or password. Double check your spelling on how you typed your site into the host section as well.

Connecting to a server via SFTP – SSH

Follow the same procedures except on the host slot you will need to put the server IP address. The Protocol should be SFTP, and Logon Type should be normal. Once you try connecting it will ask you to trust the credentials. Hit yes, and your into your server directly using FileZilla.
