Quick Overview...

Download FileZilla for Mac

Detailed Instructions...

Step 1: Connecting to your WebMate
Open up the Filezilla application and enter the following FTP details:

Username: username
This is your WebMate Password
Port: 21

IMPORTANT: Replace "username" with your username, for example "" or "charlie".

Click Quickconnect.

FileZilla will connect to the Server and you will see the files in your WebMate.

From here you can download files by dragging and dropping to your desktop or a specified folder. You can also upload your files in the same way.

Please note: When uploading files to your WebMate, the content for your website should normally go in to the /websites/ folder unless you are uploading to a multi-site on your WebMate, which should go to the relevant /websites/yourdomainname/web folder.

For more detailed information on how to use FileZilla please visit The Filezilla Website.
