1
Step One

Click the Configure FTP Client link that corresponds to the FTP account you wish to use to connect to your FTP server.

Click the FTP or SFTP link to download the XML file. We recommend that you use SFTP whenever possible, as it is generally more secure than FTP. Note: This step will over-write any previous XML configuration file without warning.
