You only need to define your publish settings once – you can
then save them as a named “Publish Profile” to enable you to quickly re-use
them again later.
Above I’ve created a “ScottGu Site” profile, and configured
it to deploy via FTPS (a version of FTP that uses SSL) to a remote
server. To deploy over FTPS select the “FTP” node in the drop-down, and
then prefix the server location you want to publish to with the “ftps://”
Note that you can either re-enter your password each time
you deploy – or save the password for future uses in a secure location (just
click the “Save Password” checkbox to do this.
