need help with FTP Server

by artchick / March 1, 2007 3:51 AM PST

I am new to uploading sites. I have a domain name and created my website with Dreamweaver . But dreamweaver suxs it doesnt download my website so i was told that it is easier and more secure to download a FTP server. Does anyone recommend one for the MAC (MAC OS X 10.93) that is FREE?

you don't need a FTP server to upload to a website, you need a FTP client. The ISP where your website is located has the server to handle the clients request.

I realize this is not an answer to your question: which program to use on a Mac.

is a really good FTP client program for the Mac.
Fetch is another with a good pedigree.

As Bob said, Google for Ftp for Mac and you will find dozens

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
