I'm setting up a self hosted site, but the domain name is still forwarding to a wordpress.com site, which is how I want it until I have the hosted account properly set up.
While this is the case, the only way to FTP files in is using the IP address in the Host field of the FTP client instead of the domain name. That's fine, works and all. But I'm wondering two things...
1. is there a way to activate a theme or plugin via the FTP client once it has been installed into the themes directory?
2. while the DN is forwarded to that wp.com site, is there anyway to get into the Admin side of the new self-hosted site? To make design changes, activate plugins/themes, etc?
Thank you so much...Jeb
