Online Connections - Export to Web

Top  Previous  Next


Campground Master has built-in FTP (File Transfer Protocol) functionality for uploading web pages to your web site after using the Export to Web Vacancy Grid function.  Some familiarity with your web host provider's uploading requirements is needed to configure this functionality.  Obviously the first requirement is that you have your own web site, and that the web server that it's on supports uploading the web pages with FTP.  It should also go without saying that the computer must have a connection to the internet.


FTP Settings are configured through Maintenance / Online Reservations / Other Online Interfaces / Connections & Options / Export to Web.


The basic settings are the same as for any FTP program.  Contact your web host provider for the actual settings to be used (just ask for your "FTP configuration settings for uploading web files"), but example entries are shown below:


Host Name/Address:

Port Number:                21

Protocol:                FTP

Username:                myusername

Password:                mypassword

Remote directory:        public_html/vacancyfolder


Note that the Remote directory should be a single "/" if the root directory is needed.  If a sub-directory is needed, the entry should not start with a slash (but it can end in a slash) -- for instance, "www/" is correct, but "/www" is not correct.


Passive Transfer -- This option can be selected for most web hosts, but some will not allow it.  If you're having trouble with the upload, try changing this option.
