December 13, 2015     0 comments

Open FileZila and go to site manager. Click on add new site. Go ahead and add your username and password and other information needed (the username and password is the same as your cPanel login details).

Once you have done that, proceed to the next step. Click on advanced in the tab. Here it is recommended to input "public_html" as the remote directory.

 Once this is done proceed to the next step. Make sure you check the box that is highlighted at the bottom of the screen which reads "Always trust certificate in future sessions"

Press okay. You should now be able to access your FTP.
