Example 1 (Create a remote folder in an FTP server):

This example creates local variables such as login credentials to an FTP server, Server Address, User, and Password. Once the credentials have been validated, a directory is created in the FTP server and then uploads a file from the local storage. A Message Box then displays the remote path where the file was uploaded.
