How to use WinSCP, Filezilla or any other FTP program ?

In this tutorial, we will learn how to easily connect to system files using any FTP program. While using these programs is certainly not difficult, it can be a bit tricky if you are a complete beginner. So today we will learn how to connect with WinSCP and Filezilla programs, but the principle is the same in all FTP programs.


First steps

First before using these programs, let's download them from here:

WinSCP

Filezilla


FTP information

Open the service we want to manage and find the FTP information:

VPS: 

Minecraft:


Web:


How to connect with WinSCP program ?

Open program and on the newly opened window we enter the login credentials from our service we want to manage.

File protocol = choose FTP (for VPS choose SFTP unless you have configured to have FTP)

Hostname = In the service dashboard search for  "hostname" or IP

Port = Minecraft port 21, Shared hosting port: 21for VPS service you have to enable FTP, though we can use 22 port with SFTP.

User name = "Login" (web) or "Login name"

Password = "Password" or "Login password"

After the information is entered press "Login". On the first login try there can be a warning:

If a similar one pop up, press Yes. And that's it, we're logged in.

User name = "Login" (web) or "Login name"

Password = "Password" or "Login password"

Port = Minecraft port 21, Shared hosting port: 21for VPS service you have to enable FTP, though we can use 22 port.
