FTP = File Transport Protocol
i.e. It’s the path of transporting your internet files up to a web server so they can become accessible online. (Some call this live online)
FTP Program Setup Up and Usage
Note: Your FTP program may be a little different than how I explain to use FTP here in my tutorial. However, most features are similar and you should be able to figure out the varying degrees of use no matter which FTP software you are using.
If you want a free FTP program that functions like paid ones, get File Zilla at this link. File Zilla is the program I use to describe how to FTP in this tutorial. Get it here: http://sourceforge.net/projects/filezilla
I like File Zilla’s drag & drop features that function just like the ones you have to pay for – but it’s FREE! Once you place your mouse on a file icon (and while holding down the left mouse pointer) you can drag files and wherever you drop them… it makes a copy and or overwrites files.
Note: Overwriting files updates them if the file name and place on the server is exactly the same. Overwriting is how you update previous files or webpages.
