You just want to rename a directory folder? I'm not sure what you're asking about.

I too am not understanding your question. Are you wanting to know what FTP is and how to use it? Or are you having a specific problem with your FTP client and need help with that? Each FTP client is different, so not always an quick easy answer. :)

To simply rename a file, type "rename [filename] [newfilename]". The file should now have a new name.

To move a file located in your "www" directory to another directory, type "rename [filename] [new/path/to/filename]". The file should now be located in the directory you specified.

Example: rename test.html mydir/test.html (where "mydir" is a sub-directory of the directory test.html is located in)

You may also move and rename files at the same time.

Example: rename test.html mydir/misc.html (where "mydir" is a sub-directory of the directory test.html is located in)

File Transfer Protocol (FTP) is a network protocol used to exchange and manipulate files over a TCP computer network, such as the Internet. An FTP client may connect to an FTP server to manipulate files on that server.FTP runs over TCP.[1] It defaults to listen on port 21 for incoming connections from FTP clients. A connection to this port from the FTP Client forms the control stream on which commands are passed from the FTP client to the FTP server and on occasion from the FTP server to the FTP client. FTP uses out-of-band control, which means it uses a separate connection for control and data. Thus, for the actual file transfer to take place, a different connection is required which is called the data stream. Depending on the transfer mode, the process of setting up the data stream is different. Port 21 for control (or program), port 20 for data.
