The Joy of FTP

Preparing Files for Transfer

Naming and Saving Files

Updating Files

Transferring Files

  1. Arrange the files you're sending into [folders within] a separate "transfer" folder or directory

  2. Open an ftp program (e.g., Fetch, which is available as shareware)

  3. Log on to your server, and move to the directory or directories where you're placing the files or folders and PUT (upload) them there. Make sure the program saves the files according to their format--and make sure you're not overwriting any files you want to keep!

  4. Exit the transfer program and browse to see if the files transferred properly.
