your Fetch FTP Client
MAC Users (FETCH)
The following information is contained within your account
activation notice and is
needed to connect to your web site via FTP:
Each time you run Fetch, the New Connection window will
be displayed. A profile contains the information needed
to connect to your web site. Creating a profile now
will eliminate the need for you to configure the software
each time you wish to connect to the web server via
FTP. To create a new profile, select "New Connection..."
from the File menu. Next, enter the Host (yourdomain.com),
User ID (yourdomain), and password for your web site
as illustrated below.
Don't worry about the Directory option right now. When
you have your Host, User
ID, and Password entered, click on the OK button.
The next window which will pop up will look virtually
the same as below, except
that yourdomain will be in the pop-up window.
Bookmarking the Connection
You should take the time, now that you have established
your connection, to
make it easier for you to get here next time. Under
the Customize menu, select New Shortcut. A window will
pop up called Bookmark Editor, as below. It will already
have your name, Host, and User ID filled in. Under Type,
choose File from the pop-up menu. If you would like
Fetch to remember your password so you won't have to
type it in each time, type in your password in the Password
field. Now, under the same Customize menu, choose Preferences,
and under the General tab, make sure the connection
you just entered is selected as the default shortcut.
Next time you open up Fetch, your shortcut will be opened
automatically and all you'll have to do is click the
How to Transfer Files
Refer again to the sample window above. You need to
double-click on www to get to your web directory. This
is where all your files will be downloaded, and/or you
will create sub-directories. The only system directory
that you may need to use is cgi-bin; this directory
is reserved for custom scripts. To make your home page
load automatically, name the HTML document "index.htm"
in lowercase and upload it to the www directory of your
account. To upload a file or files, simply drag them
from your hard drive onto the Fetch window when you
are in the appropriate directory or subdirectory. Be
sure to upload HTML documents and scripts in Text mode
and images in BINARY mode. Or to make life easier, click
on the Automatic button as shown in the sample window
above, and Fetch will decide the proper format. To transfer
a file to a subdirectory, double-click the appropriate
subdirectory to open it before transferring the desired
To insure that the Automatic selection works properly,
make sure the selections under the Upload tab in the
Preferences window looks the same as below.
As soon as a file is uploaded to the web server, it
is available for all to see. If, after uploading a file,
you are still unable to see the updated file via Netscape,
you need to hit the Reload button in the Netscape button
bar. Remember that you must first be connected to the
Internet through your local Internet service provider
in order to connect to the web server.
