Fetch ftp for mac



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 address
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.
