FTP Upload

If you do not have shell access to your server and can only use an FTP client to access your server, follow these instructions.

New Installations

  1. Open up your FTP client (our recommendation is to use FileZilla, it's available for multiple platforms, is easy to use, and best of all, it's free!)

  2. Connect to your remote server using your FTP / Account login and password.

  3. Create a directory on your host to hold the glFusion private/ files. This directory should be outside of the web root (files accessible via the web).

  4. Highlight all the files and folders in the private/ directory. These are all the glFusion files that should reside outside your web root.

  5. Drag the highlighted files over to your remote host site. Place them in the directory you created in step 3.

  6. Highlight all of the glFusion distribution folder and files in the public_html/ directory. These files will reside in your web root and must be accessible via the web.

  7. Drag the highlighted files over to your remote host site's web root that is accessible from the web.

  8. You are now ready to move to the next step in the installation process.

Upgrading an Existing glFusion Site

  1. Open up your FTP client (our recommendation is to use FileZilla, it's available for multiple platforms, is easy to use, and best of all, it's free!)

  2. Connect to your remote server using your FTP / Account login and password.

  3. Locate the directory on your web server that contains the glFusion private files. Change to this directory in the FTP client.

  4. Highlight all the files and folders in the private/ directory from your local system (where you unarchived the glFusion distribution files).

  5. Drag the highlighted files over to your remote host site. Place them in the directory you changed to in step 3.

  6. Locate the directory on your web server that contains the glFusion public_html files. Change to this directory in your FTP client.

  7. Highlight all of the glFusion distribution folder and files in the public_html/ directory.

  8. Drag the highlighted files over to your remote host site's web root that is accessible from the web.

  9. You are now ready to move to the next step in the upgrade process.

You should always select Overwrite Existing Files when prompted. It is important that the older glFusion files are overwritten with the new files.
