Using FTP Explorer
After your web page or web site has been created, you must upload it to a web server and tell students and parents the URL so they can access it. Your school may have a web site where you could upload these web pages, or you can use your own web site.
To upload these web pages to your web site, you will need to use an FTP application. FTP Explorer is an FTP application for Windows. They offer free licenses to educational users.
You can download FTP Explorer from:

Before using FTP Explorer, you will need the FTP server address to connect to (it is usually not the same as the address you use to access the web pages), your username, and your password.
When you start FTP Explorer, you will see the connection wizard, which will guide you through the process of connecting to your server:
Enter your server address, then click Next. When you complete the wizard, you will be connected to your server and you will see a list of files in your directory:
You should upload the entire folder that Gradekeeper created. Locate the folder that Gradekeeper created and drag it into the directory listing (but not onto another folder). FTP Explorer will upload the folder and all its contents to your web site.
You should always visit your grade web site using your web browser to make sure everything is working properly. The address of your web folder should be something like:
You should not need to specify index.html when accessing your grades web site. If you do not specify it and you get a list of the contents of the folder instead of the login web page, you either did not upload the index.html web page, or your web server uses a different name for its default web page. You will need to rename index.html to the file name your web server uses.
