As we now introduce Directadmin as alternative to cPanel, We will teach you
how to upload files to your website through ftp on Directadmin.
Step 1: Obtain FTP client software.
Uploading to the server through FTP requires special software. Most computer systems do not come with FTP clients, so you will have to download one from the Internet. We strongly recommend FileZilla
Step 2: Connect to the server.
If you use FileZilla, information should look like this:
All FTP clients need the following information:
- Username (This is your control panel username.)
- Password (This is your control panel password.)
- Address (This is the address of the server.
- Port (Use the default port 21)
Step 3: Open the public_html directory and upload your files.
Once connected, you can see your folders on right side. You can press on desired folder, to see its contents. If you have more than one domain hosted on your account you should first enter the /domains directory, then the domain you want to edit, then the public_html directory.
To upload, highlight the files/folders on your computer and drag them into the appropriate directory on the remote server. Each FTP client operates differently, so please consult its help file for complete instructions.
