Important note about FTP

1. The next video comes in two versions:

Cyberduck (Compatible with Mac, Windows)

FileZilla (Compatible with Mac, Windows, Linux)

These are tools which will help you upload your files to a server and share your websites with the world.

You can choose the one you prefer.

I suggest watching both videos, then deciding which tool you are the most comfortable with. (PS: I prefer Cyberduck for its simplicity)


An alternative:

Duck (Compatible with Mac, Windows, Linux)


2. Common issues and solutions:

FileZilla:

Solution:

This issue is due to a misconfiguration in FileZilla not working with the server settings. To fix it, please follow these steps:

1. Go to the top menu of the FileZilla window.
