  • Hi,

    No, I did not get any answer yet. I have an idea we need to set up a filezilla account. But I am asking here so I am sure I am doing the right thing. I have the same problem. When I install WP it gives me this error message: “ THE LINK YOU FOLLOWED HAS EXPIRED.”

  • Hi, did you resolve it?

I’ve used filezilla but always the free version. I think we just need to get pro version. Now my question is how do we get the ftp log in info. Back to Dig. Ocean for that.

Yes, exactly. Please help us Digital Ocean…

Thanks for sharing this information. It’s useful
