When you open CuteFTP, the Site Manager window will appear, select Add site. (You can also open the site manager by clicking
the icon that looks like an open book on the toolbar)
Under Site Label, enter a name for your site, such as yourdomain.com
Under Host Address, enter yourdomain.com OR your ip
Under User ID, enter your user ID
Under Password, enter your password
Then click "OK"
You will now be back at the 'Site Manager'. This is what you will see next time you open CuteFTP. To
login to your account, simply press the connect button.
Once connected you will be located in the root ("home") directory of your account. CuteFTP will display
a split screen where files on the left-hand side are within your own computer. You will see several
folders on the right-hand side such as www, and domain-logs, domain-mail which are landmarks suggesting a successful connection to your web site.
You need to double click on www to get to your web directory. This is where all your files will be
downloaded, and/or you will create sub-directories. To make your home page load automatically, name
the HTML document "index.html" in lowercase and upload it to the www directory of your account.
To upload a file or files, simply highlight the file(s) on the left and click the right arrow button (->) in the
center of the window. Be sure to upload HTML documents and scripts in ASCII mode and images in
Binary mode. To transfer a file to a subdirectory, double-click the appropriate subdirectory to open it
before transferring the desired file(s). To create a new directory, click on the MkDir button when you are inside the www directory or subdirectory.
As soon as a file is uploaded to the web server, it is available for all to see. If, after uploading a file, you
are still unable to see the updated file via Netscape, try hitting the "Refresh" or "Reload" button. If that
fails, you need to clear both disk and browser cache. This function can be found by selecting Options>Network Preferences in Netscape.
