Homestead does not operate FTP servers. You can upload files through the Sitebuilder Plus file manager and publish them. The site must be HTML. We do not support php sites.

sounds like a bit of a faff.. why not allow an ftp upload? I just don't get it.

my software exports the pages as folders obtaining another index.html - domainname.com/page <<where /page is the folder

so I would need to create the folder structure inside file manager and upload all the files into these separate folders?

The php will not work. We are not really designed for upload sites built in other systems. It does work if all HTML, but it is not the expected use. We used to have unsecured FTP years ago, but it was very sparingly used and it came time to either convert to a secure system or remove it, since less than 100 people used it, they decided to remove it.
