    Hello guys, I'm currently trying to setup CLP and upload the files to my host but I've run into some problems.
    In Filezilla, where it says remote site, for me it's blank. I tried to add a site via site manager but it still didn't show up.
    Also, when I transfer the files, all of the transfers fail, why is that?
    I'm completely new to this and never had to do this b4.

    Your not connected. Add your site FTP details, then click connect.

    If it works, you'll get folder list on right. If you don't, you should see a connection attempt dialog at the top frame, let us know what it says.

    Okay I logged in and for remote sites, all that shows up is "/"
    And under that in filename, there are two, ".." and "incoming"

    Ok your connected, maybe to wrong folder or with no perms.

    When you upload files, top frame should show the log, and it should give an indication of the issue, post it here.

    You don't have rights by the look of it. Can you click on the file icon top right frame, that has the question mark?

    You are in "incoming folder", maybe you need to get to root directory.

    If not, maybe you have wrong permissions.

    Who is your hosting with? And do you currently have a site running on it?

    Perms issue, should say public html, normally. P.s delete images as I can see your websites URL. - Some evil people on here.

    My hosting is with HostGator.
    How do I get to root directory?
    And yes there's a site on it.

    eh I don't have edit post option and I could care less if someone tries to steal my site's content. There's nothing on it nor will there be.
    Thanks though .

    Why are you using the anonymous ftp user account? I'm guessing that's why you can't upload files...

    Stop doing that and use the proper ftp user name. Problem solved.

    If you can't figure that out how to do that then you need:
