How to Use Filezilla to Manage Files on your Server

Recommended Posts

When you rent a server, regardless of the game, you need a tool to upload the files directly from your home computer to the file directory on the server. The most commonly used tool is Filezilla. This is a free program available here: http://filezilla-pro...g/download.php/ or at other websites.


After you install it, you will open it and see something like this:




The circled areas are where you need to enter your server ftp link, your username, your password, and your port number (usually 21). This information will be provided to you when you rent a server.


After you have connected for the first time, Filezilla stores the link in the drop-down button next to the "Quickconnect" button (see below). To navigate from folder to folder within Filezilla, click the ".." folders at the top of each set of directories (circled in picture below). It is a little different than using Windows Explorer, but with practice it becomes quite easy.


To move a file from one side to the other, simply double-click on it. It will be transferred from one computer to the other by Filezilla. To copy over a folder, right-click on it and select "Download". To open a file, right-click on it and select "View/Edit". You may need to select "open with notepad" if that file extension has not yet been assigned a program on your computer.
