How do I update my webforum software by FTP?
« on: 20/10/2013 05:43:57 »
I have a new website and forum. I need to update the version of the forum software but I need to use an FTP program to do that. I've never used one before so I need some help. I am using WinScp for my FTP program. I don't know how to use it and the help files donít' seem that easy to use.

Can someone please help me use it to update my software? Preferably in PM or e-mail so as not to make too much information public knowledge.

Is it safe to say at this point that nobody has the knowledge to answer this question and help me out here?

The best approach is to build a local version of the forum software so taht you know you have everything working, then move the whole tree to the remote server. Win scp is good; we use that for our audio file transfers.
