I am brand new to WordPress. I am using a free DreamHosters account while I learn how to use WordPress. I’ve found a theme at WordPress.org that I want to use and have also found some plugins that I’d like to add as well. There is something that I am doing wrong when I try to login to install the theme and plugins. The Hostname, Username, password, and choice of connection type( ftp or ftps) are the required pieces of information to log into the account. The most recent error message is “Failed to connect to FTP Server blog.smokymountainlight.dreamhosters.com/:21”. Could someone give me the exact pieces of information for those 4 form requirements for logging in? Thanks.
