    Hi

    I have tried many tutorials but still unable to setup FTP access to a wordpress blog setup on a Amazon AWS windows 2008 server.

    Can anyone help?

    EDIT:

    tried the tutorial above posted by Tariq among others

    I get a 'connection time out error'

    EDIT: Finally found a workaround using a open source cpanel


    Thank you for the inputs

    Use Filezilla server, should be much easier to setup.

    Well what specifically is the problem? When you try to connect to FTP or SFTP to your server what's the error you get? Your problem could be file permissions, FTP configuration, etc. We literally know nothing about what your errors are and what you have or have not tried.

    $50 and you will have it running in less than one hour. Let's see if I know what I'm talking about...
