File Transfer Protocol (FTP) is a standard network protocol used to transfer files from one host to another over a TCP-based network. Unlike HTTP, the FTP protocol is stateful: you establish a control connection for the duration of an FTP session that typically spans multiple data transfers.
Except FTP Jelastic also supports FTPS for secured with SSL transmission that encrypts the username and password.
Attaching an FTP-addon to environment gives a user abilities for:
- uploading/downloading resources;
- downloading and reading logs for analysing;
- editing configurations;
- syncing files;
- deploying applications (not recommended).
With Jelastic FTP feature is available for both application servers and databases.
Detailed information on FTP-addon installation and usage can be found in the user’s FTP/FTPS Support document.
