Hey guys, the info about using “Grant Privileges to New person” is wrong. This does not give sufficient ftp and database access to a wordpress consultant.
I just hired a wordpress consultant to fix a problem with soccermoviemom.com. The consultant told me he could not get FTP access through the Dreamhost panel.
I then contacted DH support, and they said:
you can only have one FTP user per domain
Grant Privileges is mainly for accessing and doing things within the panel
[*]WP admin access is thru wordpress, not via the panel
So I ended up giving the consultant my ftp and WPAdmin logins. I will then have to change the passwords after he is done.
