JETPACK requires a pathway for FTP to work need a sample so can duplicate correct pathway

I am using JETPACK for autobackup. My Mac uses TRANSMIT and I do not need a pathway to work and I can login easily and see the public folder. However, I am stumped on inputting the PATHWAY on Jetpack. Can some one provide a sample droplet pathway that for Digital Ocean accessing a public folder?

Hi @johnw-rickey,

Usually, the default path is as mentioned

  1. /var/www/html

having said that, another popular path is

  1. /home/Username

where username is a specific user.

In case that you’ve used the 1-Click WordPress installation from the Marketplace, then the path should be:


This is where your WordPress files should be stored at unless you’ve modified that in your web server config file.

Let me know how it goes.
