just open up internet explorer and go to ftp.yourdomain.extension . then upload the new config file to your /forum or phpBB/ or phpbb/ or forums/ directory

IE sucks, but it's easy for the 'more new kind of people' who step into this

in fireftp, on the left side there is a "Manage Accounts." Click on it and select "New"
Fill out account name, then host, which should be the ftp address, something like ftp.somewhere.com
put in your login and password, then save it. Click connect, which is the button to the right of the "Manage Accounts."

on the left is your computer. on the right is your ftp server.
