This is the first time I am setting up a website on IIS inside Windows 2019.
I have had experience using web hosting provider's CPANEL's, etc to upload websites. And I understand this does differ at least somewhat comparing to IIS. Please correct me if I am wrong
Inside IIS, I have set up the website which was no issue. I tested it and it is all working well.
However, on our Website building application (Rapidweaver), there are FTP server configuration details we need to enter in order for the site to be uploaded.
The information requested by Rapidweaver are;
Can you advise on how I can set up everything needed on IIS in order for Rapidweaver to upload the Website onto IIS please.
Thank you in advance,

Microsoft has quite a lot of articles like
https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/iis/install/installing-publishing-technologies/installing-and-configuring-ftp-7-on-iis-7 on Docs site, so spend time on them and you will see how easy it is.

If you created an ftp site without SSL, then the file will be uploaded via FTP. if you bound SSL certificate for your FTP site, then you could use FTPS( FTP over ssl). The transmission will be encrypted by Schannel.
Its the name of your web server, you could find it in control panel->system.
3. User name and password.
In IIS FTP, you should enable basic authentication for your website. Then the username and password would be your Window server's user credential. You only need to grant NTFS permission for the user to access your IIS server and add them to your IIS FTP
It should be the upload folder URL that required by your rapidweaver. You have to grant permission for the folder and set up isolation mode
You need to create a ftp binding host header for your website with your IP address. and ensure your IP address can be accessed from another server. Then input the ip address of your IIS server
Finally, you should set your IIS ftp firewall and windows firewall setting to allow the connection.
Please your web server have a static IP address so that the web server won't stop receiving FTP connection.

Thank you for this information. This will help out a great deal as everything else I saw on the web was not as detailed as this.
Once again, many thanks

This step shows you how to install the FTP service on an existing IIS web server that runs on either Windows Server 2012 or Windows 8.
