FTP Info


#1

Hi, my host is out of town, and i have a site hosted by him. while he has been out of town, i have reinstalled my FTP Client, and i dont seem to have a record of the connection info. Is there any way i can get these back, or do i need to wait for him to get back?

Thanks for any help.

If you have a domain hosted with DH, generally ftp’ing to that domain will connect with the machine you are needing. As far as username/password, we can’t help you much there :wink:

Check out Gordaen’s Knowledge, the blog, and the MR2 page.

I know my username and password, but for the domain im saposed to connect to something.dreamhost.com, i believe. Just dont remember what. Thanks though.

Connect to www.yoursite.com. If it resolves for your web browser, it should resolve for your FTP client and send you to the correct server.

something.dreamhost.com is the real machine name which works for FTP before your domain goes live.
