File Transfer Protocol (FTP) is a standard network protocol used to copy a file from one computer to another. FTP users may authenticate themselves using a clear-text sign-in protocol.
To begin, you will need to have an FTP client installed on your computer. For this example, I will be using FileZilla, which is a free FTP client that can be installed on any platform; however, you may use any FTP client that you want.
Next, you will need the following information:
- Host Name: This is your application’s web address (remove the http://)
- Username: This is your application’s system username
- Password: This is your application’s system password
