2.6.2.1.3. Setting up FTP connection in FileZilla

The article describes the procedure for connecting to hosting by FTP via FTP-client FileZilla.

Before connecting

Make sure the following requirements are met:

  • The IP from which the connection will be made has been added to the list of allowed in FTP security settings.
  • At least 15-30 minutes have passed since the IP was added to the allowed list.

To connect to hosting by FTP using FileZilla do the following:

  1. Open the section "File → Site Manager…»:
  2. Click "New website»:
  3. Fill in the fields on the "Arecommon»:
    • «Protocol"- select"FTP - File transfer protocol».
    • «Host"- specify the host from FTP connection data.
    • «Port"- specify the port 21.
    • «Encryption"- select an encryption option:
      • «Use explicit FTP via TLS if available».
      • «Require FTP via TLS (explicit)».
      • «Require FTP via TLS (implicit)».
      • «Use regular FTP (unsafe)"- recommended if there are problems using the previous options.
    • «Login type"- select"Normal».
    • «User"- specify the login from FTP connection data.
    • «Password"- specify FTP user password.
  4. Enable passive mode on the "Transfer settings»:
  5. On the tab “Encoding"Set the switch opposite to"UTF-8 forced" and press "Connect" or "OK»:
  6. If a warning about an unknown certificate is displayed, it means that encryption was used during the connection (FTP via TLS) and the certificate is missing from the FileZilla cache (this is typical for the first connection) or has changed (for example, due to the transfer of the hosting account to another server). To prevent the warning from being displayed every time you connect, check the box next to “Always accept a certificate in future sessions"And"Trust this certificate from the list of additional hosts". To connect, click "OK»:
