    I have read the information on "Docs" on how to get more themes. I got filezilla but could not find a folder called wp-content/themes, to upload themes onto do I have to make a folder called wp-content? I have tried making a folder but I still didn't work.

    If you have WP installed and working... you MUST have a wp-content/themes/something folder. Otherwise WP doeasn't work.
    Can you connect to your server through the newly installed Filezilla?

    .cpanel-datastore
    .fantasticodata

    mail
    public_ftp

    Your shouldn't care about anything - EXCEPT public_html.
    That's where everything that will be visible to the public is placed.
    So, click on that folder and you'll see your whole WP installation. I hope :)

    yes this is it :)

    click on public_html/

    then if your wordpress is on the root

    click on :

    wp-content/themes/something folder // as moshu mentioned .

    if your wordpress is in a folder

    wordpress-folder/wp-content/themes/something folder
