  • hey! once you login using Filezilla, just enter the below path and hit enter in the "Remote site: text box",


    then you can see the <html> folder, navigate this folder where you can see your wordpress installation folders.

  • use this 100% work /srv/users/serverpilot/apps/websitename/public

  • Hello rbiii,
    Your suggestion works very fine for me.
    " use this 100% work /srv/users/serverpilot/apps/websitename/public "

    Thank you.

You Wordpress installation is most likely located in /var/www/ Are you receiving any type of error message when you access that folder?
