    Hi forum.
    Can anyone help?

    I recently downloaded SmartFTP and FileZilla and it is not letting me connect.
    And I made sure I put all my info in correctly.

    Re: FTP won't connect...

    When you logon to an FTP server, you have to enter a logon id, password, host name (or ip address), and a port number (usually 21). Is this your website you're trying to connect to? If so, your web host should be able to supply the necessary logon credentials to you and assist you if you are having problems logging on.

    Re: FTP won't connect...

    What HTML code do I use to allow clients to upload a file to my FTP server? I know the address, user name, and password for the FTP server. I also found code for allowing users to select a file for uploading to a "http website", but not a FTP server.

    You need to use an upload script, not just HTML. PHP is one scripting language you can use for this. If you have a particular scripting language you'd like to use, just search Google and you can find a script that will serve your needs.

    The other thing you have to realize is that your "FTP server" and your "http website" are one and the same. If you are using an upload script like vinyl-junkie recommended (as do I), then you can specify exactly where the file gets saved in your web directory.
