I am installing an extension under the instructions: "Use FTP client (such as Filezilla, WinSCP, CuteFTP) to upload or copy all the folders in your zip package to your Magento site root folder." . I use Filezilla but I don't understand host field, username, password, port. Can anybody explain to me what are these fields ? (sorry for my bad english)
Hi, filezilla provides some good introduction to FTP and how to use their application: https://www.exavault.com/docs/ftp-clients/filezilla/01-connecting
Host: Enter the address for your FTP server. Username: Enter the username for your FTP server. Password: Enter the password for your FTP server. Port: This is optional, but use 22 for SFTP and 21 for standard FTP. Click on the QuickConnect button.
If you are hosting magento on a shared hosting. then do the following .
Log into your Cpanel.
Click on FTP Accounts.
here you can also create additional FTP Accounts if you wish . however, when you signed up with the hosting company , a FTP account was create for your automatically.
at the bottom , look for your ftp user name and there should be a link like ( Configure Ftp Account ) . if you click on it , it will show all the info about how to connect and also will give you a download script that will configure all that information for you for your FTP Client .
Please contact your hosting, they will give you all required info (host, login, pass, port).
