How To Get Your Website FTP
Occasionally you can’t do everything on your CMS and you need to get into the files behind your site, such as the HT Access file. Now at first this looks like an intimidating process but believe me it is simple to understand and rather simple to do, it is like accessing files much. There does not appear to be much useful information around the web so I thought I would write a step by step guide about how to get your File Transfer Protocol (FTP).
Before you start you will need:
Accessibility to your cPanel which is provided through your host, mine with this particular site is known as control.gridhost.co.uk, although this may change.
To download FileZilla the customer that you use to access the FTP.
Once you have that, here is your step by step guide… You’re generally given this by your gridhost webmail hosting provider.
Step 2: Locate your website management and find the”FTP Accounts” section, or something which refers to setting up an FTP account, as soon as you have done this setup your password and username.
Measure 3: Note down or leave your browser open with the FTP IP, username and password which you can now see in your admin section.
Measure 5: In Host type your FTP IP, Username & password are obviously the ones that you made previously and in port write 21 then fast connect.
Step 6: Your done! You will see on the ideal hand side the documents for your website along with the left hand side the documents from your desktop.
Navigating the FTP is a fairly simple thing to do, the folders are put out like a normal website is. Your primary folder typically contains your HT Access file in, Public HTML contains your CMS files and MySQL backups is as describes, copies of your SQL which you have to set within your CMS (though I believe WordPress does this automatically.)
Anyhow, I hope this has helped and if anyone has any problem please allow me to know in the comments below.
This will install WordPress zip file into your PC. You need to extract the zip file and inside it you will discover a folder that is wordpress.
Next you want to connect to a WordPress site using an FTP client. Once connected visit the root folder of your website. It’s the folder that has wp-admin, wp-includes folders. Now you need to pick wp-admin and wp-includes folders and then right-click and select’Upload’.
Upload fresh WordPress files
Your FTP client will now transfer those folder to your own server. It will ask you whether you’d like to overwrite the files. Select’Overwrite’ and then select’Always use this activity’.
Your FTP client will replace your older WordPress files with newer fresh copies. In case your WordPress files have been corrupt, then the internal server error will be fixed by this measure for you.
