Install WP plugin ID help


#1

Hello everyone,

if possible I’d like some beginner help with installing the Wordpress plugin ‘exec-php’.

I have got as far as locating the plugin and clicking the install button, at which point I am asked for a server, username and password. I am uncertain as to which details are required (i.e. is this a dreamhost password, a wordpress one, some other?) nor what format the server name should take.

Might I be pointed in the right direction to find an answer to my query? Thanks.

I used “Executable PHP widget” and I don’t remember having any trouble getting it to install.

For what it’s asking, it’s either your FTP user (on example.com), or your Database User (on db.example.com).

Thanks, but I’m still not getting it.

I have Wordpress installed on dreamhost.com.

My blog is located at blog.name.dreamhost.com

I have a wordpress login for the blog, but there was also the login I used when setting up dreatmhost itself.

So far, no combination I have tried seems to give me FTP access to install the plugin into the Wordpress plugin manager list.
