How can we help?
This tutorial will guide you through the process of configuring your website in FTP Voyager, and assumes you have already installed the application on your computer but have not yet connected to a remote server.
Step 1: Access the Site Profile Manager
Launch FTP Voyager.
In the initial dialog, check the box that says, “Don’t ask this again” and click “Use the Site Profile Manager directly.”
Step 2: Organize Your Website Logins
Within FTP Voyager, you can organize your website logins efficiently. To do this, click on “New Folder.”
Enter a name for the new folder.
Step 3: Create a New Site
To configure a new site within this newly created folder, first ensure that the folder you created (e.g., “demosites”) is selected.
Click the “New Site” button.
Step 4: Configure Site Settings
Enter a name or label for the new site (this is for your reference).
Enter the server address. The host address can be in the form of ftp.yourdomain.com, yourdomain.com, or just the IP (Internet Protocol) address.
As soon as you click the hostname field, you will notice that it is automatically populated with the site label you just entered. If it is correct, leave it as is, or modify it if necessary.
If you have a specific path to a folder on the remote server that you want to connect to directly, you can enter it here.
Provide the Username and Password for your FTP account.
Once you have entered the required information, click “Save.”
Step 5: Connect to Website
To connect to your website, click the icon that resembles a lightning bolt.
Step 6: Disconnect from Site
When you are finished and want to disconnect from the site, click the “Browser…” tab.
…and click “Disconnect.”
You will see confirmation that you are successfully disconnected from the server.
Congratulations! You have just configured your website in FTP Voyager and established an FTP connection to your hosting server.
