Filezilla can be used to upload a Picture, PDF, swf, or any other file:
Before you create a new site in Filezilla, make sure you have created a folder in your “My Documents” folder to contain all data relating to your website.
Download Filezilla “Client” for your computer and install it.
The following instructions can be used on any html-capable site.
On the right, add your “Host”. Usually, this will be ftp.yoursite.com (ex. ftp.clickabledigital.com)
For “Logon Type:”, use the drop-down menu to select “Normal”.
Then enter your “User:” and “Password:” in the fields provided. These can be found at your host account under “FTP User Account”. These can also sometimes be the same user name and password you use to log into your hosting account. (Remember, just because you have purchased a domain with a hosting company does not mean that you have purchased hosting.)
Now that you have a Site created within Filezilla, you can now connect to your server.
A list of files will show up under the “Remote site:” window. Click or Double Click on the “public_html” folder to open it. You should see a folder with your websites domain name on it. Double Click on it to open it.
Here is where you will be uploading files.
On the left-hand side of the Filezilla program, you will find the “Local site” which identifies files from your computer. Find your website folder where your files to upload are stored. Click on it until your documents and images appear in the lower-left window.
If you are uploading an image, it is a good idea to create a folder named “images” (lower case) to copy to your “Remote Site:”. You can do this by using Windows Explorer to find where your website files are stored and create a “New Folder” sometimes under the “Organize” menu. You can move existing images into the folder or simply leave it empty.
Now, if you refresh your folders within Filezilla using the green and blue arrows icon, your new folder will show up under your “Local site:” files. (or it may already be showing without refreshing)
In the lower-left window, click and drag the images folder to the lower-right window. Now you are ready to click and drag any images you want to display on your site to the “images” folder.
Any time you want one of your images to show on your website, you need to point to the file like this:
<img src=”http://www.yoursite.com/images/my_picture.jpg” />
