Hello @bubblylapisjellyfish

You can access the WordPress admin area using the IP address. However, you need to check the virtual host block for the IP address and check why the redirection occurs. You can make sure that the DocumentRoot for the IP address block is pointed to the WordPress directory.

In regards to FTP you can check this article:

Hope that this helps!
