Publishing your app using your favorite FTP client couldn't be easier wither GearHost. As with all FTP clients you will need the hostname, username and password. If you don't have any FTP client installed, please be sure to check out our guide on installing Filezilla here.
It should look something like this:
Hostname: ftp.gear.host Username: yourcloudsitename\$yourcloudsitename Password: S0M3RaV3RYjMtvL0NGLJhuiPA$$W0RDeEiiuF6DRPZK8p3RMC6
No, however it can be reset by clicking the Reset Password button on the right hand side.
At this time we do not support additional FTP accounts per CloudSite.
The webroot directory for your CloudSite is /site/wwwroot/
We provide a XML file that you can import to Filezilla. This file saves your FTP connection to the Site Manager which makes it easier to connect. On the same Publish menu, click on the FileZilla icon to download the XML file.
Tip: If you're using Kudu or Git your username is $
yourcloudsitenameIf you're still having issues please open a support ticket and we'll help you out!
