Base URL changed when I used MyFTP plugin (3 posts)

    I installed the myFTP plugin, to edit a js source file.

    Without FTP, I couldn't see any of the site files, let along change anything.

    I browsed down to the file I wanted, copied the text and backed out.

    But when I went to re-upload the file, the path is the base URL and not the website URL. In the settings, it still shows the http://www.websitename.com for the website URL, images, etc.

    I uninstalled the myFTP plugin - but all the posts relating to fixing this problem require me to access the files I could not get at in the first place, without myFTP.

    Can't you use a stand alone FTP client to upload and download your files? Or can't you use the backend provided by your web host?

    Hi

    Try this article on installing a standalone FTP program
    http://codex.wordpress.org/FTP_Clients

    It will allow you to access the files you can't get at, and then you can use it instead of myFTP
