    Default Re: Uploading files using SmartFTP

    This tutorial is presented to teach you to upload files and folders using SmartFTP. We will assume that you already have SmartFTP on your computer, and that you have it running, but not connected yet to any remote server. If you don't have your web site configured in SmartFTP yet, and need some assistance, please see the tutorial "Configuring your web site in SmartFTP". The program opens with a large blank window.

    Let's learn how to upload your files and folders from your local host, or your computer to the remote server. First you need to open a browser window. Click on File, in the upper left corner. From the drop-down menu, click on New Local Browser. This will open a browser window, and you will see folders and files located on your computer.

    The next step is to establish a connection with the remote server. There are two methods. The first method: Under the menu bar at the top of the window, you will see a series of boxes. The first box is called Address. The second box is Login, and the third box is Password. Into the first box, you would enter the remote server name, into the second box enter your FTP username and into the third you enter your FTP password. You then click the Green Arrow button at the end of the Address box. This will connect you with the remote server. The second method is to select Favorites from the menu bar at the top of the window. Select the folder you created for your web site, and click on it. Then click on the address of the web site. You are now connected using this method.

    You now have two open windows. The one the right is the local host, or your local computer. The window on the left is the remote server. The first step to uploading is to establish where on the remote server you are going to upload the files to. You should start by finding public/html, and begin navigating from there, until you find the location for the upload. Now you need to select the files in your local computer (the right window) screen for upload. To select the file, simply highlight name. To upload multiple files, hold the CTRL key while selecting the files you want to upload. When you are done, click the Upload Icon between the screens to begin the upload. It is a Blue arrow. When the upload is complete, you will see the files listed in the remote server window.

    To download a file(s), simply select the file(s) by highlighting them, the same as you did to upload files. Then when you are ready, click on the Download Icon, which is the Blue circle with an arrow between the windows, pointing at the right window. When the download is complete, you will see the files in the right hand window, where they have been successfully downloaded.

    To close the connection to the remote server, click the Disconnect Icon, which is above the remote server window. It looks like a computer with a red x on the cord. The SmartFTP program will ask you to confirm you want to close the Remote Browser. Click on the Yes. You are now disconnected.

    This completes this tutorial. You should now know how to upload and download files in SmartFTP and closing your connection.
