[resolved] Using FTP to fix broken function.php. Where to get FTP login details? (4 posts)

    Hi all,

    Basically i screwed up when editing the function.php on my site and now no admins can login. The site is functioning fine but the admin login is just white-screening. I have been desperately trying to fix this for a couple of days and these forums have helped me cobble together what i think might be a fix for it - using an FTP client to login and remove the faulty code in the function.php

    However i have run into an issue when trying to login. Apparently FTP login details are different to regular wordpress.org admin details? How can i obtain the FTP login details, does anyone know?

    The website is http://www.sichange.org

    I would really appreciate any help anyone can offer with this at all, it is a charity website and I am one of many admins and would like to get this fixed ASAP.

    Thanks very much,

    You need to contact your host:

    You need to get those from your web host, as you are trying to log in to your hosting account on the server, not WP.
