Duplicator Pro can push your backups to an FTP location. All packages are initially built on the local server and then pushed upto the FTP endpoint.
|Name/Notes||The storage name and optional notes about the local server path|
|Server||The FTP server name. Please see your FTP server documents for the correct server name|
|Port||The FTP server port. Please see your FTP server documents for the correct server port|
|Username/Password||The FTP username/password. Please see your FTP server documents for the correct username/password|
|Storage Folder||The folder on the FTP servers where packages will be stored. This should be unique for each web-site using Duplicator.|
|Max Packages||Specify the number of packages to keep in ‘Storage Folder’. Setting 10 will keep the last 10 packages. Set to 0 for no limit. It is highlyrecommendedto keep this number low. Storing too many packages can lead to space allocation issues.|

|SSL-FTP||Should the connection attempt to use FTPS to connect to the server. This option needs to be supported and configured correctly on the FTP serverbefore it will work correctly.|
|Passive Mode||Should this connection use FTP passive mode.|
