FTP using Fillzilla

All I want to do is use FileZilla to transfer files from my PC to /var/www/html

I have watched videos and searched the web, and everything is so convoluted.

There must be ab easier way to use Filezilla to copy files.

Up to 10 attachments (including images) can be used with a maximum of 3.0 MiB each and 30.0 MiB total.

So as step 1, did you figure out what FTP server IP address and user credentials you should use? If not, search on that and get started.

I am using the web app LAMP so don't need an FTP server.

I can't find the dashboard where to go for setting up the users for FTP access.

Gary, just following-up, since you have posted the question on azure-webapps. To confirm, are you leveraging Azure App Service WebApp or hosting the site on an Azure VM?


Just sharing few tips from Azure WebApp standpoint/to isolate the issue - On App Service, all the officially supported deployment methods make changes to the files in the /home/site/wwwroot folder of your app. These files are used to run your app.
Kindly see this doc for the steps: Deploy your app to Azure App Service using FTP/S

Check that you've entered the correct hostname and credentials. Check also that the following FTP ports on your machine are not blocked by a firewall:

Also, on App Service WebApp: Authenticating to an FTP/FTPS endpoint using user-scope credentials requires a username in the following format: <app-name>\<user-name>


Alternatively, you could leverage Kudu (if your requirement fits)
Kudu is the engine behind a number of features in Azure App Service related to source control based deployment.
See this doc for the steps: Working with Files in Azure App Service

Hi @Gary1946-8388 ,

maybe this helps: https://pricklytech.wordpress.com/2020/03/01/ubuntu-18-04-lamp-server-quick-ftp-to-webserver/

As neither LAMPS nor Fillzilla are Microsoft products, as far as I know, there are maybe other sources in the internet to search for support.
