I know this is a very basic question.
I am new to web programming.Im working with a CMS.My client has asked me to 'FTP' the site that i am manipulating on my local machine, so that he can view the changes too.He also gave a link on cliking which, the site pops up in its original form.I understand that its hosted on a server and i am suposed to make it look like the one i have modified on local.
How do i do this?
using an FTP client.
What about the database?
And also what if something goes wrong during the process?Is it undoable?
I would have done much more research before asking this question, but i have got so little time to figure this out.Thnks
Encourage your client to use scp or sftp instead. It'll encrypt the login and traffic.
Get an FTP program like WSFTP.
What about the database? You need a copy of the database on the server (which is presumably where the link goes).
Get the login/pass from the client.
It's un-doable if you have a copy or backup of the original.
FTP copies files from one machine to another. Sounds like you need to install the CMS on the server.
Need more information: what CMS, is it already on the server, what database?
