Managing files in SmartFTP



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
