Getting started with FTP

We recommend using FileZilla. FileZilla works on multiple platforms and is completely free.

2. Configure FileZilla

In FileZilla, navigate to File > Site Manager then click New Site.

3. Connect to your server

Finally, click Connect to test the connection to the server. When finished, your Site Manager should look similar to this:
