  • How do I transfer files?

    After connecting to your web site, a window similar to the one found in Figure-2 (show below) will appear.  

FIGURE - 2 (Basics)

Notice that the FTP window is split into two sections in the figure above.  When you connect to a site, your computer will be on the left side, under section "Local System" and the remote computer will be on the right, under "Remote System".  Local System will display the current path, files and drives on your computer.  Remote System will display the current path, files and drives on the remote computer you connected to.  

Directly under the label "Local System" you will find a file listing.  The top box will contain your current path and the bottom box will contain a listing of the files in the current directory.  The Remote System will contain the same type boxes, only displaying the remote computer's information.

To upload files to your website:

Step 1 - Put a checkmark in the box that says "auto".  It is located near the bottom.  

Step 2 - Highlight the files you would like to transfer to your website by choosing them from the left box.

Step 4 - Another box will come up telling you the status of the transfer.  

Step 5 - When that finishes you will be done transferring the file and you should be able to see it in the right side now.
