How To Access Your Website FTP During FileZilla

Sometimes you can not do everything on your CMS and you have to access the documents behind your website, such as the HT Access file. Now at first this looks like a daunting process but believe me it’s quite simple to do and easy to comprehend, it is similar to accessing files on your desktop computer. There doesn’t appear to be much helpful advice around the web so I thought I would write a step by step manual about the best way to access your File Transfer Protocol (FTP).

Before you start you will need:

Access to your cPanel that’s given through your gridhost webmail server, mine for this website is called control.gridhost.co.uk, although this may vary.

To obtain FileZilla the client that you use to get the FTP.

Once you’ve got that, here is the step-by-step guide…

Step 1: Login to your hosting service e.g cPanel or Gridhost. Your hosting provider usually gives you this.

Step 2: Locate your website management and find the”FTP Accounts” section, or something which refers to establishing an FTP account, as soon as you’ve completed this setup your password and username.

Step 3: Notice down or leave your browser open with the FTP IP, username and password that you can now see in your admin section.

Step 4: Open the FileZilla program that you downloaded.

Step 5: In Host form your FTP IP, Username & password are obviously the ones you made before and in port compose 21 then quick connect.

Step 6: Your done! You may see on the right hand side the left hand side the documents from the desktop and the documents for your website.

Navigating the FTP is a fairly easy thing to do, the folders are set out much like a normal website is. Your main folder normally has your HT Access document in, Public HTML comprises your CMS documents and MySQL backups is as describes, copies of your SQL which you’ve got to set within your CMS (although I think WordPress does this automatically.)

Anyhow, I hope this has helped and if anyone has any trouble please allow me to know in the comments below.

Download WordPress

This may set up WordPress zip file into your computer. You have to extract the zip file and inside it you will find a folder that is wordpress.

Then you need to connect to a WordPress website using an FTP client. Connected go to the root folder of your site. It is the folder which has wp-admin, wp-includes folders within it.

From the left column open the WordPress folder on your own PC. You need to select folders and and select’Upload’.

Your FTP client will now transfer those folder into your own server. It will ask you if you’d like to overwrite the files. Select’Overwrite’ and then choose’Always use this action’.

Overwrite files

Your FTP client will replace your old WordPress files with new copies that are newer. In case your WordPress files have been corrupted, then this step will resolve you the server error.
