Fetch If you are using a Macintosh, Fetch is probably the most popular FTP Client available and is quite easy to use. Specific instructions about how to use Fetch are included below:

  1. Establish a connection to your Virtual Server by selecting the "New Connection" button under the "File" menu. Specify your domain name (or temporary domain name if your domain name has not yet been registered) as the "Host", your login name as the "User ID", and your login password as the "Password".

  2. You will want to navigate to the "www/htdocs" or "usr/local/etc/httpd/htdocs" folder on your Virtual Server. This is the directory where you will store your web content.

  3. To upload content to your Virtual server you can either drag files and folders from your desktop to the Fetch window or select the "Put File..." button and select files and folders.

  4. Be sure that all HTML documents and cgi script are transferred in ASCII mode. Graphics should be transferred in Binary format. Fetch also has a setting, "Automatic", that you can select- Fetch will then automatically determine which mode to transfer the file (we recommend you use the "Automatic" mode).
