FTP software

I recently downloaded Cute FTP from the Cute website (I forgot I could get it here), the version on Cute's website is time limited, by any chance is there version here available with out a time limit, if not is there any other FTP software that is like Cute I could use with out the time restrictions?

You can actualy do without any FTP software. Cool
Since about version 5. something of Internet Explorer you can just type ftp://ftp.plus.net into your browser address bar and you will be asked for username and password.
This will get you to the root directory of your webspace and you should see 2 folders htdocs and logs.
Open the htdocs one and then you can just drag and drop from other folders on your PC. Cheesy

Oh right, yes but there is only one folder called htdocs, no logs folder, is this a problem? What is the logs folder for?

Logs will only exist if you have enabled the raw weblogs/webstats (details of visits to your webpages) for processing. See the Webstats link on the left.

If you don't have a logs directory don't worry. It has no effect on your webspace or website.

I enabled websats a few weeks ago. Oh regarding uploading by copy and pasteing to ftp://ftp.plus.net can the same be done for CGI and FP, what are the FTP URL's for doing this?

Did you actually request the raw webstats logs to be generated. You do this by raising a contact us ticket. Just enabling webstats just gives you access to the PlusNet generated data on the webstats link.

Contact us
- technical support
- Webspace FTP HTML
- Enable raw web logs

You can use the following to FTP to your related webspaces:

www.username.plus.com or ftp.plus.net
cgi.username.plus.com or cgi.plus.net
fp.username.plus.com I think (don't use FP so can't check it)

What is the difference, I assume that I go to the same place to see them once they are enabled.

I will raise a ticket later.

The difference is the normal webstats you can only see via the web stats link. The raw log files are written to your logs directory on your www webspace so you can copy and process them your self using a different webstats program and have the stats available on your website.

See the tutorials forum for details on running your own webstats processing using webalizer and awstats (although awstats does not run very well on plusnets cgi server die to memory restrictions - see the end of the tutorial thread for details).
