I don't understand the documentation
I am brand new to website creation and know nothing
Where is my root folder that I'm supposed to put everything in?
I have registered a domain name and hosting and it has ftp facilities.
That's all I've done so far. There is no website on there or anything.
I've downloaded wordpress and added my usernames and passwords etc. to the the wp-config.php file
so if I go to http://www.mysitesname.com I get a '404 - file or directory not found'
if I go to 'ftp.mysitesname.com' I log in with my ftp username and password and there are htdocs or logfiles folders which open blank windows that I can drag stuff into and out of.
Is this where I'm meant to put everything? I'm guessing not, cos it's not working
I downloaded Filezilla and when it connnects to my ftp , I can see all the wordpress files I dragged into my ftp in the htdocs folder.
I'm really struggling with most of the wordpress documentation because this is all very new to me.
