How To Get Your Website FTP Through FileZilla
Leave a Comment / How-To / From Mat McCorry
Occasionally you can’t do everything on your CMS and you have to get into the documents behind your website, such as the HT Access document. Now at first it’s easy to understand and quite easy to do, it is similar to accessing files. There does not seem to be much useful information around the web so I thought I’d write a step by step manual on how best to get your File Transfer Protocol (FTP).
Before you start you may need:
Accessibility to your cPanel which is provided through your gridhost webmail server, mine with this website is called control.gridhost.co.uk, but this may change.
To obtain FileZilla the customer that you use to access the FTP.
As soon as you’ve got that, here is the step-by-step guide… Your hosting provider generally gives you this.
Step 2: Find your website management and find the”FTP Accounts” section, or something that refers to setting up an FTP account, as soon as you’ve done this set up your username and password.
Measure 3: Notice down or leave your browser open using all the FTP IP, username and password which now you can see in your admin section.
Measure 5: In Host form your FTP IP, Username & password are of course the ones you made before and in port write 21 then quick connect.
Measure 6: Your done! You may see the documents for your website along with the left hand side the documents from the desktop computer.
Assessing the FTP is a fairly easy thing to do, the folders are put out much like a normal website would be. Your main folder normally has your HT Access file inside, Public HTML contains your CMS files and MySQL backups is as explains, backups of your SQL which you have to set within your CMS (though I think WordPress does so automatically.)
Anyhow, I hope this has helped and if anybody has any trouble please allow me to know in the comments below.
This may set up WordPress zip file to your computer. You have to extract the zip file and within it you will find a folder.
Then you need to link to a WordPress site with an FTP client. Connected visit the root folder of your website. It’s the folder that has wp-admin, wp-includes folders inside it.
From the left column open the WordPress folder on your own PC. You will need to pick wp-admin and wp-includes folders and and choose’Upload’.
Your FTP client will now transfer those folder into your server. It’ll ask you whether you would like to overwrite the files. Select’Overwrite’ and select’Always use this activity’.
Your FTP client will replace your old WordPress files with new copies that are newer. Then this step will fix the internal server error for you if your WordPress files have been corrupted.
