To transfer files via FTP using FileZilla, do the following steps:

  1. Open FileZilla
  2. Open File > Site Manager
  3. Click the site you want to connect to under Select Entry
  4. Click Connect

You should now be connected to your FTP account and see your files on the right and on the left, are files on your computer.

Using these two views you can upload and download by drag and drop by selecting files you want to upload from the left and dragging them to the right and vice-versa for files you want to download.

For files you want to appear on your website, make sure you always upload into the docroot which can be public_html, www or htdocs.

Keep in mind, if you have multiple sites on your account such as sub-domains or domains, you should always upload into the appropriate location for those sub-domains or domains (eg. /example.com/htdocs or /example.com). (c) securesignup.net.
