Fast data entry

Normally the FTP Server input should contain only the base FTP hostname (or be blank for auto-detection):

FTP Server:
ftp.server.com

You may, however, enter all of the FTP details - server, username, password, and path - on a single line using the following syntax:

FTP Server:
ftp://username:password@ftp.server.com/path/to/folder

If you enter this specially-formatted string, then it will be parsed and its values will overwrite any other data in the FTP Username, FTP Password, and FTP Path sections.

To specify an absolute path from the root, use an extra leading slash in the path, like "ftp.server.com//var/httpd/cgi-bin/". To specify a relative path from the FTP home root, do not use extra slashes; i.e. "ftp.server.com/public_html".
