using godaddy windows server 2008 iis7 dedicated no control panel with remote desktop (rdp)


I installed wamp

I want to allow another user to use this folder
c:/wamp/www
without giving rdp access (because there are only 2 rdp connections)

So if I do ftp, will it be wamp or iis7

What are instructions for ftp


Please do not provide generic instructions because it may be apache not iis7 ftp

Please add more zones: apache

WAMP does not include FTP by default. Apache does not include FTP by default, but you can download mod_ftp if you want to.

Actually, you will probably want to download a third-party FTP program like FileZilla (this is what I do).

If you want to use FTP from windows server, you have to enable IIS. Afterwards, you can turn off the HTTP part of IIS and just keep the FTP if you want. Here are some instructions: http://www.codero.com/knowledge-base/questions/240/Installing+and+enabling+IIS+and+FTP+on+Windows+Server+2008+R2+

As far as I know, there is no FTP server in WAMP so you'd just use the one in IIS and make a virtual directory that points to c:\wamp\www

Neither one because neither one of them includes an FTP server.  You will have to install or enable an FTP server on your machine.

The best solution is to use filezilla - costs nothing, works well.
