How to install FTP on Windows Server 2008 R2

Step-by-Step Guide

  1. On the Windows Start menu, click Administrative Tools, and then click Server Manager.
  2. In the Server Manager Pane, in the Roles Summary section, click Web Server (IIS).
  3. In the Web Server (IIS) section, click Add Role Services.
  4. Under Role services, select FTP Publishing Service. This will install the FTP service and the FTP management console.
  5. Click Next, and then click Install.

    Now you may go to IIS Manager and add FTP Publishing to your existing website or you may create a new FTP Site pointing its root folder to the website root.

    Note: If your IIS Manager is already open, close the window and open again to see FTP option in the IIS Manager.
