When should I use ascii and when should I use binary?

Many FTP client programs support and auto mode to detect the proper upload type based on file extension. Often you will have to do this manually when the program does not perform this properly.

In general, any files that contain text such as .cgi should be uploaded in Ascii.

Files that have scrambled content such as pictures should be uploaded in binary.
