How to upload backups to FTP/FTPS server.

< All Topics

To automatically upload your backups to your FTP/FTPS server, follow the steps in this guide.

Note: Before you start this process, if you use a firewall application, ensure that you create an exception rule for the IvyBackup application as this will allow IvyBackup to communicate with the FTP server.

From the top ribbon menu, under Tools, select Online Storage Accounts:

This brings up the storage accounts window. Select the Add button:

Select the FTP/FTPS service, then Add Service to proceed.

This will launch the FTP server info dialog:

Once you enter the server details, click the Test Login button to ensure that IvyBackup can authenticate with the server. Also ensure that you enter a path to save backups to, verify that IvyBackup can upload to that directory by clicking Test Upload. Once you are satisfied with the details, click Save and close the storage accounts dialog.

Once you have added an FTP account, you can select which jobs will upload their backups to that account. To do this, select an existing backup job and choose the edit option.

On the Locations page, select the Manage Accounts option:

Once the accounts window opens, under the FTP/FTPS section, click the Select Account button:

From there on, choose the appropriate account and click Select. When this is done, save the job.

The next time the backup job is run, the backup will be uploaded to the FTP server once it is complete.
