You have to install FTP support yourself. ColdFusion Builder 2016 provides the installers you need. The steps are as follows:
You now have FTP support on ColdFusion Builder. To make an FTP connection, follow these steps:
Thank you so much. I will give it a try and let you know
I just did with your instructions. I entered my FTP connection. Now what do I do to see all remote folders, files, etc please?
Window => Open Perspective (=> Other) => Remote System Explorer
In the Remote FTP Remote FTP Only System Connection window, it asks me to fill in the below
1. Parent profile: I think this is my local machine, right?
2. Host name: what is this? (Something like www.site.com? or something like 126.96.36.1997)
3. Connection name: what is it?
4. Description: manual text
I suspect you are looking at wrong window. Let's start again.
You have, as you say, established a connection to the FTP server.
Follow the menu Window => Close All Perspectives.
If you now follow the steps in my last post, you should see a tab called Remote Systems. This tab contains the details of the remote folder, files, etc. See example in the attached image.
To return to the ColdFusion perspective, follow Window => Open Perspective (=> Other) . Choose ColdFusion (default) and click on Open.
It works now. Thank you so much.
I have another question: How do I do to transfer folder/files from my local machine to the remote site please?
Thank you so very much for your time
I know I can transfer file from local to remote site by dragging the file but I wonder if there is any way to do so. I tried to right click on the local file but I did not see command to do so
In local Windows Explorer: CTRL-C on the file (copy it);
In the remote environment: CTRL-V on the folder (paste the file)
