Absolute path to my home folder


Hi all –

I’d like to manually install and configure Wordpress in a folder that’s not associated with a domain … I’ll do that after it’s working correctly.

What I can’t figure out is how to get to my home directory. I can FTP in, create a folder and upload the Wordpress files, but what’s the path I then follow to finish the install?

I’m supposedly on Walker, so I’ve been trying:


but nothing loads.

Thanks in advance for any help.


You won’t be able to without a domain. If you want to use our dreamhosters domain to build out the site, you can: http://wiki.dreamhost.com/WordPress#DreamHosters
