Uploading files using CuteFTP




Uploading Files using CuteFTP

This tutorial assumes you already have CuteFTP and have it running on your computer, but not connected to another server

Now let's learn how to upload or transfer files from our computer to a remote server

Click the Site Manager icon here

Select the site we want to connect to

Then click Connect

Click OK

That's it! We've successfully established an FTP connection with Demo345.com, and now have two windows open.... our local computer files are displayed in the window on the left.....

..... and our remote server files in Demo345.com are displayed in the window here on the right

Let's navigate to the public_html folder

It is in here that we want to upload some files

Select the files we want to upload here in our local computer window.....

Hold down the CTRL key to select multiple files for uploading

When ready, click the Upload icon here to start transferring the files to our remote server

That's it! We've successfully uploaded the selected files to the remote server, and they are now also displayed here in the remote server window

To demonstrate how to download files, we'll first remove a file from our local computer.....

Highlight the photo.htm file and delete it

Click the Delete icon here

Click Yes to confirm

Now let's download the photo.htm file from the remote server to our local computer

There it is!

To close the connection to the remote server, click the disconnect icon here

This is the end of the tutorial. You should now know how to establish an FTP connection with CuteFTP, and upload or transfer files to/from your local computer
