Gaining access to root directory (4 posts)

    I had my blog set up by a webmaster who uses bitserve as a hosting company. I want to get into my root directory to perform some operations (like making it google friendly). Do I have to gain access to the host company account to get to the root directory. Also once I'm there, can I make a copy of the directory on my computer for easier access? I did look at the documentation on this, but it was pretty confusing for me.

    I don't have experience with this particular company, but yes you will need an ftp account with the appropriate permissions. I suspect this is something you'd want to ask the company about.

    As for the copy of the directory, yes, you can copy everything onto your computer as long as you have the relevant permissions.
