I am making a very simple webpage for my first time for online school and I did all that was required except now I can not create the web page becasue when I installed FTP LE client software it would not let me open and use it. The thing just kept on installing over and over again. SO, then I installed filezilla and followed all my instructors, well, instructions, and the Filezilla says it cannot connect to a server. Does anyone know what I am trying to do, what it means? how to finally finish this assignment? Thank You.

Verify that the server address, port, username, and password are correct in Filezilla. If they are, check with your instructor to verify that the information you have is correct. You may need to temporarily disable or add an exception to any firewall and security programs you have installed.

Filezilla's output may be useful in diagnosing the issue. For example, if there's a problem connecting to the server you might get an error like this:

Status:	Connection attempt failed with "ECONNREFUSED - Connection refused by server".

Or, if your username or password were incorrect:

Response:	530 Login incorrect.
Error:	Critical error
Error:	Could not connect to server

and so forth.
