Okay, so FileZilla is now connected to both your local computer and the online server you can write to. Now comes the familiar and easy part.
FileZilla works almost exactly like the explorer file/folder structure of whatever operating system you’re using. You can drag something from the left hand column into the right hand column and it will be copied from the local computer to your online server. Or you can drag something from the online server to your local computer and it will be copied to your local computer. Brilliant!
You may be wondering what happens if you go to overwrite a file that’s already there? The answer is exactly what you’d expect, FileZilla will ask you what you want to happen.
And there you have it. Hopefully you can see why a program like Filezilla is so useful, it mimics the copy/paste functionality found in your operating system which you’d no doubt be familiar with. If you’re editing a website and constantly making changes to what’s online then some kind of FTP client is a must!
