Hello, i have installed wordpress on my droplet. I have also installed zpanle and configured iptables.

I cant get ftp to work through filezilla which is no major issue. But i need FTP to work through wordpress for the uploaded of pictures etc.

Can someone please tell me how i can get FTP to work? Do i need to add/remove rules from iptables ?

sudo chown -R www-data /var/www/html

This was the solution for me:

On my first SFTP try, I was logged into the “root” folder. But, as it turns out, the “root” folder is not the root of drive.

If you go up one step in the file hierarchy to “/” you’ll find what you’re looking for. The WordPress installation is in “var/www”

To get there the first time, enter “/” as the remote path.
