wp provides an option to upload media using uploader in dashboard >> media >> library and i can successfully upload media files that way
but i wanted to examine if it is possible to use an ftp client like filezilla to upload media files which somehow i have been used to for long before coming to wp
so i attempted the following approach but failed to get desired results
i am not sure if the failure on my part is on account of a mistake in my methodology or is it because uploads using filezilla do not work for wp?
if any one of you experienced guys can help me understand the basic reason i shall appreciate
following was the approach i adopted which finally failed –
wp dashboard >> wp settings >> media tells me wp-content/uploads is the place to store my media files
using filezilla i uploaded media files to public_html/wp-content/uploads
next i checked wp dashboard >> media >> library but did not see uploaded files on that screen
then i thought may be wp-content/uploads is supposed to be placed in wp installation folder which is public_html/wp
using cpanel >> file manager i moved wp-content/uploads to public_html/wp
still i did not see media files uploaded using filezilla inside wp dashboard >> media >> library
