I need to get an ftp client to update an old website. Any recommendations?
I use Core FTP, the freebie
Thanks! I will take a look at them both.
My HTML writing is way out of practice. Any recommendations for a site builder? My host has the usual scripts, but I really don't like them.
I have used the cmd line ftp clients for a long time, but when I used to use a UI-based ftp client, I always used CuteFTP as well.
Depends on what you want it to do. I love joomla
I want to start off slowly, just to get the hang of it again. But eventually I want to build an informational website. Forums are easy and readily available, but the HTML editors have changed quite a bit since i last updated my site 3 years ago. Yes, 3 years, lol.
CuteFTP is still around and being updated? I've always used CLI FTP clients except when just downloading which I would just use a browser. (unless downloading lots of files, then back to CLI)
The last GUI FTP client I installed was for a user and it was FileZilla.
As for building a website. I would look at a Content Management System. Building one from scratch these days is foolish unless you have a completely new idea or extraordinary requirements.
You can Google "Top 10 CMS" and get several options.
On the mac, I use fugu. S'ok.
Macs are Unix based. Don't they have "ftp"? :laugh2:
FileZilla - Mozilla
Free Client Application
Free Server Application
Cute FTP. If not that, find another one that supports segmented downloads. It makes a big difference in download speed for me.
