Uploading Files using WS_FTP
This tutorial assumes you already have WS_FTP 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 Open a Remote Connection
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 Upload icon here to start transferring the files to our remote server
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 favorite.htm file and delete it
Click the File menu
Then click Delete
Now let's download the favorite.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 WS_FTP, and upload or transfer files to/from your local computer
