Re: How to use WinSCP to back up my website's files.

So it looks like you do not have a question about the back up, but rather about connecting to your web hosting.

So how do you manage your website, if you do not know your web hosting details?

How to use WinSCP to back up my website's files.

Hi, I wasn't able to find anything about backing up website files in the FAQ.
Version of WinSCP you are using: I assume I'm using the latest version, as I just installed it a few minutes ago.
If the problem started to occur after upgrade, mention the last version of WinSCP which was working for you: irrelevant.
Version of Microsoft Windows you are running WinSCP on: Windows 7.
Transfer protocol: don't even know what this means.
Mention if you use GUI or scripting/automation. If you use GUI, specify interface style you are using: have no idea.
If you experience an error, include full error message: irrelevant.
Try to describe precise steps that lead to the problem: I open WinSCP and am faced with choosing a file protocol (I don't know what this means) and a port number (have no idea what this could be).
If your problems relates to interaction with remote server, please post a full log file showing the problem: irrelevant(?)
For scripting/automation-related issues, include your full script, command-line you use to run WinSCP, and output you see on WinSCP console: don't understand what these are.
I'm not going to feel comfortable doing anything with my site until I've fulfilled the back up prompt. Thanks!
