Using ftp


I am new to this - does anyone have any input on learning how to use ftp? I can’t figure out how to get folders into the plugin or theme directories. If I upload a zipped file I can do it, but if it is an unzipped folder it just creates a new directory. Also, how do you delete and uninstall mistakes? Thanks Ron


Using a program like filezilla, you can dar and drop files and folders on the server. This works great when files are in the wrong folder, instead of downloading and uploading again, you can just drag to the correct folder.
Most if not all ftp programs will allow you to select multiple files and or folders and hit the delete key to remove files from the server.
