Moving html files into folders in ftp


I was given access to editing a site (written in html) through the ftp. I know how to create pages in html and accurately update the site.

The problem is that there are so many .html files (that lead to pages on the site) and I want to organize them using folders. I created a new folder and tried to transfer the html files, but it won’t let me do that.
Is there a certain way to move the html files to the folders? Or is there a reason I shouldn’t do this?


If you are moving files to folders, you will need to update the links on other pages which has reference to the files you are moving.

For example: href=“example.html” will need to change to “folder/example.html”

What error did you see when you try to move the files? You should have no problems doing so.
