FTP access set up / file name path (2 posts)

    I am trying to link a file that I FTP'ed over.
    I set up the FTP account in BlueHost and it gives me a directory that is empty and has a long path like this: /home3/octoquan/public_html/mikhail
    I uploaded the file "Name.XLS" to this path.
    Now I am trying to specify the URL for this file.

    I tried http://www.octoquant.com/home3/octoquan/public_html/mikhail/Name.XLS

    but it does not work.

    I also can't seem to give that FTP account access to all the parent directories, where I can find the more typica WP-uploads folder.

    Any advise?

    Thank you

    Can you upload an image to your FTP folder? If not possibly, your FTP account may not have been set up correctly. You can collect FTP connection info from your hosting provider or seek their support to set up FTP client.
