You will need FTP access to a webserver, so that you can upload your password file.
You have two possibilities:
Fill in the fields of the dialog window Internet server profile as follows:
Protocol: Two protocols are available, FTP, HTTP, SFTP, HTTPS, FTPS and FTPES. HTTP and HTTPS allows to read a password file, but not to change it. In this example, we will therefore choose FTP.
Host: Enter the host name here, as you would enter it into your FTP client. If your webserver is for example http://www.acebit.com, just enter acebit.com here.
Path: Enter the path of your file on the FTP server here. It is not (always) identical to the path which you enter into your browser. Example: If you log into your webserver with your access data, you will access a start directory (which one depends on what the administrator set up for this FTP account).
If you would like to save your password file on a path /mywebsite/data/passworddepot/ this path has to be available from your start directory.
User name and password: The access data of your FTP account (you will normally receive them in the control panel of your provider or from your administrator).
If you would like to use your already existing password file via the Internet in the future, so that you are able to access it from wherever you are, please proceed as follows:
