Wordpress files not in ftp

I have a website made with wordpress however its ftp doesn’t contain the wp stuff I need to edit, what happened?

If the website is running correctly, then you’re looking for the files in the wrong place. Maybe you could share more details about your site, what the domain name is, where you’ve been looking for the files, how you installed wordpress in the first place, etc… The more details you share, the more chances there are that somebody here can point you in the right direction.
