Upload And Download Files with FTP.

In order to alter any website you need to have access to the website files on the host computer. The best way to do this is by downloading them from the server to your PC using FTP. When you are finished editing them, upload them back using the same method.

Steps In Transfering Files Using FTP

  • Step I - Download and install FileZilla or any other FTP software.
  • Step II - Connect to your web server.
  • Step III - Transfer the files.
  • Step IV - Check transfer results

If you have sensitive data files, it is not recommended to store passwords on FileZilla itself , rather use the "Ask for password" setting. Remember anyone with knowledge of your username and password can access your FTP account and have access to all your website files.
