Believe it or not, FTP programs are easy to use. Most are laid out in
two windows, and all you have to do is drag your web files from "your
computer" to home.xroad.com.
How do you do that?
First you'll need an FTP
Program, unless you have Windows 2000 or newer, then click
here to open Windows 200 FTP. If you're not comfortable with FTP programs,
you can use this site
to transfer your files. Now at somepoint, your FTP program will ask you
for a "site address". Our FTP address for this is home.xroad.com.
Your user name and password for your FTP are exactly the same as your
login and password for our member's area. Now if you can't find a place
to enter a name or password, or the program is rejecting your attempts
to connect, it is most likely because you are attempting to log in "anonymously."
You can't log in to XRoad anonymously, because then the server doesn't
know who's account you are trying to update. Obviously, for security reasons,
we've disabled this function. Lastly, you will need to rename your main
page/homepage to index.html
So, to sum it up:
- You are connecting/logging
- You are using your XRoad login
- You are using your XRoad password
- You are not logging
