Using FTP from within NetBeans

iLite's blog

I ran into a small problem the other day. The code I had written and tested on my local XAMPP server worked fine, but once uploaded to my hosting server, it did not. I started doing the usual debugging – make a change, ftp to server, refresh browser.

Then I though – hell, there must be an easier way. And there was – using NetBeans (my IDE of choice) I was able to set up a FTP connection to my hosting server. This allowed me to make the changes and simply upload straight from NetBeans to the host.

I know it may only seem like a small amount of time saved – but it does allow for an extra cup of coffee at the end of the day.


So briefly here is how I did it.

Select the project you wish to FTP to the server.
