It is not possible to access the server as “root” user via ftp. If you wish to access the root directory of the server, you can use secureSSH using tools like PuTTY or winSCP. You can configure PuTTY as below:-

1. Download the PuTTy sftp client http://the.earth.li/~sgtatham/putty/latest/x86/psftp.exe

2. Open the command line interface :

3. Go to the directory where psftp.exe is located.

4. Type “psftp.exe xx.xxx.xx.xxx -P 2200” to access your server. < Where : xx.xxx.xx.xxx is the IP address >

5. Login as root.

6. Use “CD” to change directory and “PUT” to upload files.
