Updating with a Windows machine
« on: July 16, 2021, 01:51:52 pm »
I now have a hp Windows machine (among other reasons, to help me update my website).
What would be a good program to use for this? Remember, I have not done so in most of a decade.

Sorry for the slow reply. I was traveling the past two weeks. As always, SFTP/SCP is the the way to connect. I still suggest the venerable WinSCP. https://winscp.net/eng/docs/free_sftp_client_for_windows

Downloaded last night.
Reading the online manual now.
THANKS! I knew that was the program I wanted when you replied, but I had forgotten the name (it has been almost three quarters of a decade :-) )

I sure don't remember these details (password, etc.). Could you email them to my new email toastmastermazanec@gmail.com ?

I've sent you an email with details and a password reset.

I'm sorry, either it got lost in cyberspace or I accidentally deleted it.
Could you resend?

I've resent them. It should be coming from a xepher.net address, so check your spam folder.

I managed to change it, but I am trying to change it again.
When I go to what should be the new page via google, I still get the old page on my screen, but when I click the page on SCP I get the new one.
What is wrong?

Checked on iPhone and it is changed.
Guess my HP hasn't caught on yet...
