FTP Tutorial

Ensure you have WS_FTP LE installed on your computer. If you do not have WS_FTP LE, you can download it here.

Once you have downloaded and installed WS_FTP LE, open the program. A window will automatically open. Fill out the window with the information below:

Profile Name: Your Domain
Host Name/Address: yourdomain.com
Host Type: automatic
User ID: your user name
Password: your password
Account: leave blank
Comment: leave blank

By checking the "Save Pwd" option, you can log into your account via FTP in the future without being prompted for your password.

Once you log into your account, you will be taken into the "root" of your account. Among several system files and directories, you will see an important directory called "public_html". Enter this directory by double-clicking the folder. Once you are in your public_html directory, you can begin uploading all of your files that pertain to your website. 


The "root" of your account is the "/" directory. Below is what your account will have in the root of your account, by default:

.cshrc
.hushlogin
.profile
ftp
local.cshrc
local.login
local.profile
logs
public_html

The files (.cshrc, .hushlogin, .profile, local.cshrc, local.login, and local.profile) within your root should usually not be modified. More details on these files can be found in our Telnet tutorial.

When uploading content to your website, you should be in the public_html directory or a directory within the public_html. In your public_html directory, you will also notice a directory named "cgi-bin" which is the directory you should use to for CGI scripts, although CGI scripts are allowed to execute anywhere on your account.

You have successfully completed this very short tutorial on using WS_FTP LE.
