HOW TO CONNECT WITH WS_FTP

It doesn't matter which one you decide to use, they all work pretty much the same. For the sake of this discussion we will be looking at WS_FTP from Ipswich.
 
STEP 1 - OPEN THE PROGRAM

Double click the icon to open the program. You should see something like this


 

STEP 2 - CREATING A NEW SITE


Click File -> New Site. You will see this

 

STEP 3 - ENTER YOUR SITE INFORMATION


Enter your site information as you received it in the welcome letter. Click Finish.

NOTE:
1. Do not put the http:// in front of the name of your site.

 

STEP 4 - SELECT YOUR SITE
 

You should now see this. Notice mysite.com is highlighted on the right hand side.

 

STEP 5 - ENTERING YOUR USERNAME AND PASSWORD

OK, here comes the part where most newbie's have difficulty. Read this part carefully.


 

 

  • For your main account:

    • Enter your username as admin_name -- without the @mysite.com part. NOTE: If you don't enter it like this, it will not work.
       

  • For Sub-accounts (like when you added a new FTP account for a specific folder)
     

    • Enter your username as ftp_user_name@mysite.com. NOTE: If you don't enter it like this, it will not work.

  • Enter your password in the password box.

  • Check the Save Password box.

  • Check the Passive Mode box.

  • Click Save.

  • Click Advanced Properties (See next step).

STEP 6 - SETTING THE ADVANCED PROPERTIES
 
  • Click the Startup tab and enter the Remote Site Folder as /public_html/
  • Click OK.
  • Click Connect.

 

STEP 7 - CONNECT TO YOUR SITE

If you did everything right, you should see something like this:

  • The files/folders on the left hand side are the files/folders on your PC.

  • The files/folders on the right hand side are the files/folders on your Website.

  • Use the -> and <- buttons in the center to transfer files to or from your site by single clicking on the file in the window and then clicking either -> (from PCto server) or <- (from server to PC).

  • IMPORTANT NOTES

    • On your Website, you must put all files in the html for Ensim Control Panels and public_html for Cpanel.

    • You can make more folders from there but they must be in the html or public_html folders.

    • cgi programs are uploaded to the cgi-bin folder. You can also great sub-folders here.

    • cgi programs (with the file extension of .pl, .pm, .cgi) must be uploaded in ASCII (DO NOT USE AUTO) mode or they will not work. (In fact, most files can be uploaded in ASCII excepting for binary files eg. programs, zip files, images).
