How to Setup CoffeeCup Direct FTP - 2
Optional: There is one more optional step that can save you a lot of time in the future. That is to setup the default upload folder on your computer. This folder will automatically appear in the left panel of the screen when you log on to your website server. You will want to set this to the folder that contains the files that you want to upload.

Click File > Edit Server to open the My Sites dialog box. Click on the name of the website that you wish to upload to.

Example: website1

At the bottom of the dialog box you will see an input box named Initial Local Folder. Use the Browse button next to the input box and navigate to the folder that contains your files and then click OK to set this as your default folder. Now click OK to close the dialog box. You can do this for every website that you want to setup.

Now you are ready to start uploading your files. In the upper left corner of the screen you will see a Connect button. Click on the small black arrow on this button and you will get a drop-down list of all of your websites.


Click on one of the websites from your list and the CoffeeCup software does the rest for you. When a list of files and folders appears in the right panel of the screen, you are successfully logged on to the server. To upload or download files you just drag and drop the files from one panel to the other. When you are ready to log off, just click the Disconnect button.

Note for WindowsR XP users:
When you attempt to log on you might get an error message. To stop this, do the following. Right click anywhere on the right panel and a popup menu will appear. Choose the View option from the menu. Another menu will popup and you will see another list of options. The Details option is the default option. You cannot use the Details options with XP. So select any of the other options. The one I use is the List option.
