Uploading files using LeapFTP
Uploading Files using LeapFTP
This tutorial assumes you already have LeapFTP and have it running on your computer, but not connected to another server
Now let's learn how to upload or transfer files from our computer to a remote server
Click the Sites menu here
Click Site Manager
Select the site we want to connect to
Then click Connect
That's it! We've successfully established an FTP connection with Demo345.com, and now have two windows open.... our local computer files are displayed in the window on the left.....
..... and our remote server files in Demo345.com are displayed in the window here on the right
Let's navigate to the public_html folder
It is in here that we want to upload some files
Select the files we want to upload here in our local computer window.....
Hold down the CTRL key to select multiple files for uploading
When ready, click the Commands menu here.....
..... then click Upload
That's it! We've successfully uploaded the selected files to the remote server, and they are now also displayed here in the remote server window
To demonstrate how to download files, we'll first remove a file from our local computer.....
Highlight the interest.htm file and delete it
Click Yes to confirm
Now let's download the interest.htm file from the remote server to our local computer
There it is!
To close the connection to the remote server, click the disconnect icon here
This is the end of the tutorial. You should now know how to establish an FTP connection with LeapFTP, and upload or transfer files to/from your local computer
