Uploading web page with Windows FTP

    here are instructions to put your web page on-line in your WWW directory

  • For NT/95/98/XP, Click 'Start' then 'Run'
  • In the window type command and press [ENTER]
  • You should now be running a DOS window
  • Change into the directory where you've stored your web page, ie, type cd "C:Documents and SettingsuserMy Documents",
    or for XP and newer, skip this and the following step.
  • You might also note, long directory names might not be the same in
    DOS. If this is the case, type dir to see a listing of files and
    directories the way DOS sees them. Normally if the name is very long, only
    the first 6 characters are the same and the ending is replaced with ~1.
    Heres an example: long version; longfoldername... short version; longfo~1 (XP and newer, skip)
  • Now, Type ftp****
    ****NOTE: If you are uploading to your own domain use instead of as shown below.

  • For XP and newer, you can simply type 'put' and then click the file you want to upload and drag it into your ftp window and
    hit enter.
  • Your main page should always be titled index.html, other files will
    have the same name as you originally titled them.
