Formerly known as Anarchie (a long-time favorite among Mac FTP users), Interarchy is an all-encompassing FTP tool and "Internet assistance". You may obtain a demo copy and purchase a full copy here.

Setting Interarchy up to work with your DreamHost account is fairly simple. Simply launch the Interarchy application and follow the directions below.

Note: Interarchy supports both the FTP and SFTP file transfer protocols. We highly recommend SFTP over FTP as it is more secure and is fully supported on our servers. While the following instructions assume you will be using SFTP, you can choose the equivalent option under FTP and the setup process will be nearly the same.

1. After opening Interarchy, click on the "File" menu, then choose "SFTP Listing..." from under the "SFTP" sub-menu. A settings box will appear.

2. Where asked for an "SFTP Server", enter your domain name. You can leave the "Path" field blank. Fill in your FTP/SFTP username and password where prompted (note: be sure not to use your Web ID and its associated password, as these are different). Finally, click on the pop-up menu at the bottom of the window and set it to "Bookmark for Later". Click on the "Bookmark" button.

3. You have now bookmarked your SFTP (or FTP) account. You can log in at any time by double-clicking on it in the Interarchy bookmark listing.

3. When logged in, you will see a directory listing. You can navigate from folder to folder by double clicking on folders and using the navigational buttons at the top of the listing. You may upload files (such as web pages, images, etc) by dragging and dropping them into the folder you want them to be uploaded to.

For more information on using Interarchy, please see the software's documentation, here.
