I have remote access to their server and I can access the xampp page but how do I go to filezilla and ftp files across?
You would have set up the ftp server with a user name and a password for you to access the server I assume.
Note: For security you should disable anonymous connections.
You use an ftp client to connect to an ftp server.
FileZilla has a free ftp client:
Which you can easily configure to connect to your friends FileZilla ftp server on port 21 with an address like:
or your friends IP
Username - you set in the server
password - you set in the server
Or you can use a browser in much the same way.
You will be prompted for the password you set up in the ftp server
or use the IP in the browser:
You would change the address of the ftp server you set in the FileZilla settings in the above instructions.
Post back if you get stuck.
