Managing files in SmartFTP
This tutorial assumes you already have SmartFTP running on your computer, and connected to a remote server
Click the New Folder icon here
Now let's learn how to manage our website files
The first thing we're going to do is create a new folder (or directory) on the remote server
Give the new folder a name
That's all there is to it. Now let's rename this new folder.....
Click the rename icon here
Then type in a new name for the folder
You can also rename files the same way as you rename folders
The new folder has been renamed
To delete a folder (or file), make sure it's highlighted.....
..... then click the delete icon here
The folder we just created, has been deleted
Now let's learn how to change the permissions of a file
Select the file for which you want to change the permissions.....
..... then click the Properties icon here
To change the file permissions, simply enter the new permissions value here.....
..... or check off the appropriate permission boxes below
Click OK when finished
One last thing..... we can also view the contents of a file on the remote server, without first having to download it to our computer
Let's do that now.... select myfav3.htm
That's it! Permissions for the file interests.htm have been successfully changed
Then click the View icon here
This is the end of the tutorial. You should now know how to manage your files and folders in SmartFTP, including creating new folders, renaming them, deleting them, changing file permissions, and viewing file contents on the remote server
