I am using a (Free) web host called 000a.biz, which has a generic auto-installer. The installer offers WP 2.8.5, which of course is outdated. I've installed WP 2.8.5, but unfortunately, when I try to upgrade my installation to 3.0, I can't because the FTP access isn't direct to the specific site. The way it works is:
1. Login to the FTP server
2. Click on the folder of your site (yoursite.com)
3. Go into the folder "htdocs"
4. There is what would normally be called the "root" of the site.
How can I get the auto-updater to get there so it can find the root folders and files? HELP ME OUT HERE! ARRRRFGH!
