FileZilla is a free FTP tool available for PCs and Macs (OS 10.5 or higher). To get started using FileZilla to transfer files, you'll need to:
Visit the FileZilla home page and click the "Download FileZilla Client" button.
Click a FileZilla installation file to download. For PCs, click the highest-number file that ends in "_win32-setup.exe" the "Windows" section. If you're using a Mac, click the file designated for the processor in your computer (newer Macs use an Intel processor).
When the download begins, your browser may open the file for you; or you'll be asked to save the installation file to your computer. Save the file anywhere you like just be sure to make a note of where you saved it!
If your FileZilla file didn't open itself automatically, find the file on your computer now and click on it twice quickly to open it and begin installation. (The file is called FileZilla_[some number]_win32-setup.exe or FileZilla_[some number]_tar.bz2.)
Follow the installation instructions: You'll be asked to agree to FileZilla's general public license, then choose options and a location for your FileZilla files.
We recommend accepting all but two of the default settings: If other people have access to your computer, you may want to choose the option to make FileZilla available only to you (rather than anyone who uses your computer). For quick access to FTP, we also recommend that you select the Desktop Icon component.
When you have completed the last step, click the "Install" button to install FileZilla on your computer.
When installation is complete, click the "Close" button.
If you chose to install the Desktop Icon component, open FileZilla by clicking twice on the FileZilla image on your computer's desktop.
If you didn't create a desktop icon, or you can't find the image, click your computer's "Start" menu, choose "Programs," then the "FileZilla" folder, then "FileZilla."
To start using FileZilla with your Web Hosting account, you must enter your unique FTP settings.
When you successfully connect, you'll see a note in the status area at the top of your screen indicating that you are connected. (Learn how to troubleshoot connection problems.) The files and folders on your own computer will appear in the "Local Site" pane on the left side of your screen (1). Your Web Hosting account files and folders will appear in the "Remote Site" pane on the right (2).
You can now transfer files and folders between your remote and local sites by dragging them from one pane to another! Learn how.
NOTE: As of February 19, 2013, Yahoo! Small Business has completed the transition from supporting FTP to FTPS. To avoid any connection issues, please make sure you have updated your FTP client to use your FTPS settings.
