Accessing wp-content directory


#1

Hi guys, I’m brand new to the ftp thing… I don’t even understand what it is, really. I did the one-click wordpress install and had a web developer add a custom .php page, as well as other custom features. I notice when I go to the domain (which is fully hosted by dreamhost), and go to webFTP, there is no wordpress related folder at all. I’m wondering if I need to go elsewhere to find this information. I’m currently trying to create a child theme, and know I need to access the FTP wp database to do so.

Any idea what I’m doing wrong? :-/

Thanks so much.

Check in Panel to see which user the domain is running under and then log in to SFTP using that user’s credentials.

Thanks, it turns out it was all under the wrong user. Appreciate your response!
