What exactly are you trying to do Peter...? and which OS is this on...? and are you talking about FMS 13...?
FMS 13 has its own webroot folder, in which the default HTML page lives (the one with the T logo (what is that logo of...?) which says Install Name FileMaker Database Server Website). You could set up an ftp server which had that folder as its root, then upload things to there, which would then be accessible to web users (assuming the permissions were set correctly)
Well, I have set up my FM Server both as a database server and as a web server. Now I want to connect to the web server with Coda2 using FTP. But I am unsure how to set up this FTP connection in Coda2.
I am using FM Server 13 on a Mac.

I see no reason why not - on the OS X server you'll need to enable the ftp server, see: http://igerry.com/desktop/apple-os/enabling-ftp-server-os-x-mavericks.html for a 'how to' on that.
You can then set up an account on the OS X server which has write access to the FMS web root folder (/Library/FileMaker\ Server/HTTPServer/htdocs/ or /Library/FileMaker\ Server/HTTPServer/htdocs/httpsRoot/ if you're using https) and use those credentials in the FTP config for Coda2
Thanks for your advice. I'll take a look at your suggestions and see if I can get it to work.
Using plugins like the MBS Plugin you can upload via FTP from a script to transfer data to a FTP Server.
