Silly FileZilla login question

I’m not sure what I’m doing wrong. I set up the new root password and logged into filezilla successfully. My host was the IP for my website I’m hosting, username was root, password is the one I resetup through console access and port is 22 for wordpress. BUT, I can’t see the directories I want to see.

Am I doing everything right, here’s more infromation: Through my digitalocean, I have set up filezilla. I’ve logged in with my root password and username. I’m trying to re-edit the functions.php for my wordpress file but can’t seem to find it the directory? I need to just change up a line of text in that file that is causing that error, but I can’t seem to find the functions.php. I’ve done ‘force showing hidden folders’ as well, in FileZilla.

Everywhere I have looked it seemed that people were able to access the directory: wp-content themes yourtheme functions.php

But mine isn’t there. My remote site isn’t like that? Here’s a screenshot:

Here’s the navigation video on how to find the file through file manager:

Well it seems like is not possible to use an image snapshot to start a new droplet. You will have to create a droplet and set up wordpress then just move files and database

You do know DO has a one click instal of wordpress. It will install everything that is necessary for the server.
