[resolved] Public_html and WWW folders (3 posts)

    hi there!

    I am fairly new to WordPress and am totally impressed!

    I have learned that I can go a manual installation by uploading my WordPress files (plugins and all) to the public_html folder. From there, I install and I am up and running to do all the fun things...

    Question:

    When I want to i.e. delete/add a plug-in or delete/add a PHP file, do I FTP to the public_html folder or do I FTP to the WWW folder?

    Thanks
    Mark

    This is something you should ask your hosting company. Also, it's entirely possible that your www folder is simply a symlink for public_html, i.e., www is just another name for public_html (if memory serves, iPower hosting accounts used to have that setup).
