How do I update an existing wordpress site thru dashboard (3 posts)

    I have taken over an EXISTING WORDPRESS site.

    I have downloaded WordPress and have installed it successfully. I created a 'test' site so that I could log on to the dashboard.

    Now, I want to upgrade the site I have taken over. (which is a wordpress site)

    I have FTP'ed this site to my local drive.

    My question is; how do I view and edit this existing site using dashboard?

    I have tried all sorts and cannot see how to do this and every bit of help I try to find just talks about converting a existing site to wordpress. This is NOT what I wsnt to do - I simply want to work on the exsiting WordPress site using the dashboard.

    Any advise gratefully received.

    Go to yourdomain.com/wp-admin/ and login

    I have downloaded WordPress and have installed it successfully.

    You don't download WordPress to your PC; you use it on the webserver. You don't install WordPress if you have an existing WordPress site.
