FTP Access to Wordpress Install Directory

  • Posted June 10, 2014

I can FTP to my Root directory but Wordpress is up and running an dI can’t get to those directory with the same login/password. Any idea how to get there?


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

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.

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

Thank you. Bandish []
