I have a html key from mcafee to get my website verified.I have found out most of what I should do to get that done BUT I cannot figure out how to put the actual file into the root folder of Filzilla!
This is all new to me .Can anyone help please...maybe show screen shot?


Many thanks

Thanks.I have tried and tried but the html file which I have wont let me drag it across to the remote side.I have it where it says local site but I think that space is for a directory and I havent got my file in a directory.

I have never even seen FTP before.

I just cannot do it and I'm a senior citizen so I'm probbaly too senile for this.

Try another way:

1. Enter the webroot directory of your site on the remote side. This is the directory where the index.html has to go.
2. Select the file or files you want to upload.
3. Right-click the selection and choose "Upload".

If you get an error in the log at the top post it here.

Thanks for your patience.

Ok that seems easier but I don't know how to get this html file downloaded to the left hand side of the Filzilla page.

Once I get that done then I can drag it across to the remote site.


Just to clarify,they gave me this file and I have copied it to my mouse .I just can't find the place to put it .Where it says local site on the left hand side there is only the root folder.

Earlier you wrote that it is already there?

That's confusing... First you want to download it to the local site, then upload it back?

Sorry, you cannot copy anything to your mouse. A mouse is just an input hardware device and cannot store anything.

What do you mean by that? You can navigate freely through all directories on your PC.
