FTP is an essential tool for moving files from your PC to your web server. Unfortunately, FTP terminology and setup tends to be rather confusing to the novice. In this video I walk you through the basics of FTP and clear up the mystery surrounding those pesky FTP connection settings.
Note: With recent improvements to WordPress there’s hardly any reason to use FTP to move files anymore. Occasionally you’ll run into a situation where the file you need to upload exceeds the maximum file size set by your web host. When that happens your only option is to use FTP (or convince your web host to increase the maximum upload file size).
