took me like an hour or so to download filezilla... bad day to download apps when a new distro is hot from the oven...
This course will become read-only in the near future. Tell us at community.p2pu.org if that is a problem.
In this task you're going to install an FTP client. It should take you about five minutes.
I use FireFTP and have use BulletProof FTP in the past.
Also, I know many times, especially on Micro$lop Windoz systems, the integration of Windoz explorer will allow for an FTP connection within Internet Explorer. This worked up to Windoz XP SP3, after that, I couldn't tell you.
Quite honestly, I don't have to use FTP a lot. Most web-base CMS offer browser and/or flash uploads, so the need for FTP is reduced, when using these systems. This is definately the case with WordPress.
I don't recommend FTP since the password are transmitted plain, so when you transmit a file your password can be seen in your local network, in your provider network, in the provider of your hosting service and in the local network of you hosting service.
Prefer SFTP and ask your host provider to implement it.
For simple editions I just login with ssh and then use vim. To transfer files I usually use scp that is a standard tool of ssh in Unix style hosts, for example to transfer index.html:
scp index.html sn2.pasosdeJesus.org:/var/www/htdocs/ejemplohtml/
To the people that prefers a graphical solution I recommend Ubuntu and the functionality "Connect to server" of the standard file browser, it allows to see the remote folder as a local folder.
