Wordpress installed perfectly. But I want to have access to all the files that belong to my site via an FTP client. Can not find how to do.

I used the 1-click-install wordpress with ubuntu 16.04 and followed the steps to add a domain etc. My wordpress site is working fine, but now I would like to access the wordpress files in Filezilla. But i can not seem to find the guide that helps. When I log in with my current hostname and password, I can find a lot of files but not the files that belong to my wordpress site.

Hope someone can help!
