How to use an FTP client with your service

Here, we'll be taking a look at using an FTP service to control your service's files. The first thing that you will need is an FTP client, we recommend using FileZilla.
It can be downloaded from here:
Instructions for configuring your FTP client:
Step 1: Once downloaded, run the installer and open the program.
Step 2: Log in to the Game Panel and view the game service you'd like to log into FTP for.
Step 3: Under the 'Server Information' tab you will see something that says 'FTP: server ip:ftp port'. Copy these numbers. They should look something like this: Paste them into the 'Hostname' box of FileZilla.
Step 4: The username/password is the same credentials as you use to log into the game control panel. Your password can be changed from within the panel.
Step 5: The port will automatically adjust itself to whatever the correct value is (8821) if you copy/paste the 'FTP' info from the panel correctly into FileZilla.
Step 6: You're all set! You can now begin dragging/dropping files to and from your server.

*Note: If your service does not support FTP (for security reasons), this will not be possible.
