If you are running the Microsoft Windows O/S on your PC,
is an extremely friendly, intuitive and easy-to-use FTP Client.
Specific instructions about how to use WS_FTP are included below:
Establish a connection to your Virtual Server by selecting the
"Connect" button. Specify your company name as the "Profile
Name", your domain name (or temporary domain name if your
domain name has not yet been registered) as the "Host Name/Address",
your login name as the "User ID", and your login password as
Once a connection is established, two columns will appear on your
screen. The column on the left displays files on your computer
while the column on the right represents directories and files on
your Virtual Server.
You will want to navigate to the "www/htdocs" or
"usr/local/etc/httpd/htdocs" folder on your Virtual Server
(the right side of the dialog). This is the directory where
you will store your web content.
Select the appropriate files or directories that you want to
transfer from your computer (the left side) to your Virtual
Server (the right side) by selecting them with your mouse.
You can select more than one by holding down the shift key.
Once these files are selected you simply hit the arrow "-->"
pointing toward the right or toward the Virtual Server directory
window. Be sure that all HTML documents and cgi script are
transferred in ASCII mode. Graphics should be transferred in
Binary format. The latest versions of WS_FTP provide an "Auto"
toggle button you can select- WS_FTP will then automatically
determine which mode to transfer the file (we recommend you
use the "Auto" mode).
