How do I upload files to my Linux server?

First, make sure you have a working ftp client. We recommend FileZilla.

Most Linux Distributions

Host: {your server IP}
User: root
Password: {your server's root password}
Port: 22
 

cPanel

Host: {your server IP}
User: {cpanelusername}
Password: {cpanel password}
Port: 22 for SFTP, or 21 for regular FTP

With cPanel installations you can create custom FTP accounts through the FTP Accounts area within the control panel. Further information can be found here:
http://docs.cpanel.net/twiki/bin/view/AllDocumentation/CpanelDocs/FTPAccounts
For custom created FTP accounts the credentials would be as follows:
Host: {your server IP}
User: user@domainname.com (replace with the custom created user account)
Password: {corresponding user password}
Port: 21
