National Association of Social Workers: Response to the Terrorist Attack American Tragedy - How to Help American Liberty Partnership



"How to upload your web pages to America Online"

AOL's FTP Help File Also see: External Applications Page: "How to use External Applications with your AOL FTP connection". This includes FTP clients like WS_FTP, CuteFTP, and FTPXplorer, as well as using Microsoft's Publishing Wizards 1.1 and 1.5a or HTML editors that have publishing capablitities like Microsoft FrontPage and Microsoft Publisher 97, HotDog Pro 4.0. MacOS users:  FETCH.

Sept. 5, 1999 - This section is in the process of being rewritten because AOL has changed things around a bit. 

NOTE: America Online gives you three ways to publish/post your web pages.

FTP, then click on "Go to FTP" to upload to My Place.

"My FTP Space" (type in keyword: my place)

AOL Hometown - Build a page NOW!

You must have an America Online account and being using America Online's Web browser to be able to use this.

I used My Place to post my web pages on AOL and wrote "How to upload your web pages to America Online" for that method."


  1. Log onto America Online, AOL, and type in keyword = my place and hit ENTER on your keyboard or click on "Go". (After you get there, you can put this "place" into your "Favorite Places" folder by dragging the heart icon into the "Favorite Places" folder. You can also go directly there by clicking on this link, My Place.)
  2. (You can click on the "Frequently Asked Questions" icon to get all the details about AOL's FTP information and the specifics about filename format, counters, etc., if you want them.)
  3. Click on the "Go to My Place" icon.
  4. Click on the directory that you want to put the file in (You don't need to do this if you don't create subdirectories using the "Create directory" icon.) and, then click on the "Upload" icon and select corresponding file type using the "radio buttons": "ASCII (text documents)" or "Binary (programs and graphics)" for the file you are uploading and type in the filename and hit ENTER on your keyboard or click on "Continue". (Note 1: "Binary .." usually works fine for everything. Note 2: Even if the HTML file on your hard drive is, for example, "index.htm", you can upload it as "index.html" just by typing it in that way. This saves you from having to use the "Rename" feature, see below.)
  5. Click on the "Select File" icon and select it from your hard drive or diskette, and next, the filename and location will appear in the "File" dialog box.
  6. Click on the "Send" icon. A dialog box will appear that show the status of your upload in percentage uploaded so far. When it is done uploading, you'll see this message: "File Transfer Complete".
  7. If you did not upload you file using the file extension, ".html", and that's how you referred to them in your "internal links" of your HTML documents, then you need to click on the "Utilities" icon, then the "Rename" icon. If you mess up, you can click on the "Delete" icon or depending to the circumstances just "over-write" the file by uploading "on top of it".

Be sure to eventually read the AOL's FTP Frequently Asked Questions, FAQs, by clicking on the "Frequently Asked Questions" icon, as note in step 2.
