How to upload a csv file with products via ftp in woocommerce?

I tried to download the CSV file with products for my WooCommerce store but nothing worked for me. https://prnt.sc/pc008p  When I wrote in support, they explained to me that the file is too heavy (750 mb https://prnt.sc/pca0iw ) and that there are limitations. Then I said - well, what can I do? And I was advised to use FTP. I installed Filesilla, and I saw that there are a lot of folders. I tried uploading the file to one of them. The file uploaded easily, but it did nothing good. I wrote in support, but not all GoDaddy employees are competent. Some do not understand what they mean. 

Help me figure out,how to upload a csv file with products via ftp in woocommerce?

How many products are in your CSV file - at 750MB - that just seems a bit large - let's answer that first and then we will figure out best way / recommendation to import

ok at 417k products the 750MB makes sense....

 

So based on your original post - If I understand correctly, you WERE able to at least FTP the file onto the server.....

If that is the case I would just use the built in WooCommerce import which allows you to specify a server path https://docs.woocommerce.com/document/product-csv-importer-exporter/

Wow! Cool!  https://prnt.sc/pdiq0g  The file is already loaded and I should not click "select file" since the 128mb limit is in effect and now I just need to specify the path to the already downloaded file! it is perfectly! I will try it!

One thing to keep in mind is that you may run into a memory or timeout issue with a file that size - You may have to split it into smaller files - but this is at least a first step
