FTP is considered to be extraordinarily insecure.
I would suggest you use ssh file transfer. Take a look at FileZilla, which is a very flexible open source file transfer utility.
Thank you David.
Silly novice question. FileZilla is my preferred path. I'm not sure how to set up the dang thing. any idea how/where to determine the credentials to get in via FileZilla?
Hello, and thank you for using Amazon Lightsail!
We have a guide in the docs for this (thankfully, specific to FileZilla!). Read it here: https://lightsail.aws.amazon.com/ls/docs/en_us/articles/amazon-lightsail-connecting-to-linux-unix-instance-using-sftp
You need to download your private key and use SFTP. The guide should be relatively straightforward. If you run into issues or need help, I'd be happy to assist!
This WORKED! Thank you Maxwell. Before you, this was a few days of searching with no luck. This guide was perfect.
