Push the little hand-shake icon below the word 'host' to connect to the FTP. If a box pops up, just press ok.


6. Find local files

You will see the major part of the screen is split into 2 sections on the left and right. The left hand section is the file system of the computer that you are using.

In the right hand window, browse to the 'htdocs' directory. If your files are not put into the 'htdocs' folder, your site won't work.
