    When using the FTp where would i look to find the list of users registered with the site?

    They are listed in the database, not the files and directories. You can't view it via ftp. The list is located in the the wp_users table, I believe. You can view those tables using phpMyAdmin or whatever database tool you have in your hosts control panel.

    However, perhaps something like this may be just as useful.

    Members List Plugin

  3. Or you can log into your admin side of your site and look at the users list :)

    well the reason im trying to retrieve this is my previous site got deleted but i recovered all the files and i have all the old files in a separate dic. so i need to replace the old user list with the new one

  5. If you didn't back up the database, you can't.

    Probably. That depends on the plugin but generally it goes like this:

    The filesystem stores the files used to run WordPress.

    The database stores the information to customize WordPress.
