Selecting the FTP plug-in as destination

If you are want to perform FTP backup (e.g. copying website content through FTP connection), choose FTP as the source of data. Again, it can be applied on a Step 2 when you are creating a new task, or by editing an existing task using the tab named "Backup set".
