Create a Filezilla Server on your own computer

Filezilla Server is an program that allows you to set up your own free FTP server.

Today we’ll build a free open source server on your Windows PC with FileZilla for easy file transfers from any computer.

OnGoogle type in Filezilla &  Download the Filezilla server application.

If you want your FTP server on by default, choose “Start as service, started automatically (default)” as shown. Otherwise, choose “Start as service, started manually.”

Set the port for the admin interface to use. By default it’s 14147,

Set the server administrative interface to launch automatically (or not).

Run and connect to the server with the admin interface

Since the server is running on your PC—the same one the admin interface is running on—its address is localhost, or127.0.0.1. The default port is 14147

If this is the only FTP server you’ll be administering, check off the “Always connect to this server” box

Create Server Users – from the Edit menu choose Users. In the Users dialog on the right hand side, hit the Add button to create a new user and assign a password. Then, on the left side, select “Shared Folders” to set what folders that user will have access to on your server.

If you want to grant several users access to your server all with the same rights and directory access, instead of creating each one individually, set up a user group

Log into the Server – using Filezilla Client or similar – enter the server address, user name and password.

Server address – across your home network use its internal network address (eg, 127.0.0.1) From the command line, type ipconfig to see what that address is. To log into your FTP server over the internet, set up a URL for it

User name and password This is your user name set up in FileZilla’s admin interface, not the server admin user name. for others, give them each a specific username and password to log in as well as the server address.

How to transfer files from Computer to your web server Cpanel with Filezilla

Here is my video – 

How to transfer files from your Computer

Here is a text with the method described in the video –

How to transfer files from Computer
to your web server Cpanel with Filezilla

Once you have the FileZilla client downloaded and activated on your computer, enter the domain name in the address field (you can also use the server’s IP address). The username and the password you need to type in are the same as the ones you use to log in to your cPanel. The FTP port is 21 and is filled in automatically.

Click Quickconnect and the file listing will appear. Find the www (it is a symbolic link to public_html) directory and double click on it.

Then, select the files from the left side to be uploaded and drag-and-drop them under the www folder on the right side. Wait for the transfer to be completed.
The difference between the filezilla client and the filezilla server is that the client is designed to allow the users to manage their files via FTP access while the server version allows you to run the FTP service on your hosting machine.

FileZilla client is used to connect to a web server, FileZilla server is used ~as~ the Web Server; you can’t connect to other web servers with it, but you can connect to it with other clients – In other words, to connect to a web server, you need the client, the server is useless for that purpose.

Pick the client if you want to transfer files. Get the server if you want to make files available for others.

We will use Filezilla Client to connect with our web server to transfer our chosen files – Filezilla server is used to make files available to others & will be the topic of another video
