    The FTP info is usually needed when the file permissions or ownership don't allow WordPress to overwrite them (the way some servers are setup, this can help keep the files more secure).

    If you need the FTP login, of course the best place is usually from your hosting provider for the blog (usually the same as your ftp hosting provider). They can also answer questions about permissions etc.

    hope this helps
