I would like to build my website using the WordPress installer, and it seems that I should first have a FTP connected to my site.
I attempted to navigate the Dreamhost FTP (net2ftp), and was able to enter the username, server name, and password, and was then taken to what I guess was my file uploading page. But I found the site extremely non-user friendly for a beginner. The Help Page was ridiculously unhelpful. It was practically written in Latin for all I understood it.
So I turned to the program FileZilla, which was supposed to be very easy to use. However, after downloading the program, I was not asked for the username, password, and servername that were provided to me by DreamHost. Instead, I was asked for a server address, a port number (which was automatically typed in as ‘14147’) and an administrative password.
Do you have any idea how I can use this FTP program with Dreamhost-ed site built by Wordpress?
Also, I noticed that when I press the FTP navigation button under my domain in my Manage Domains page, the page cannot be found.
So…what’s going on here? Thanks for the help.
I’m a total beginner so please respond in detail and in layman’s terms
