FTP Host/Login/PW

I'd like to use FileZilla to access my wordpress site.

I am not sure if my company firewall is blocking it, but is my FTP account/password the same as my WPM-MU admin login?
Is FTP blocked for the basic 1st month membership? I am trying to troubleshoot. What is the host name? (e.g. http://ftp.sitename.com or http://www.sitename.com)

Thanks,
Jeff

    Greetings Jeff,

    Welcome to WPMU DEV!

    Thank you for the great questions.

    I am not sure if my company firewall is blocking it, but is my FTP account/password the same as my WPM-MU admin login?

    It is possible but not probable that they are the same. You would need to ask the network administrator for the FTP account information.

    FTP and WordPress are not related to each other and FTP existed long before WordPress was "invented" by a factor of years.

    Is FTP blocked for the basic 1st month membership?

    Only the hosting network administrator can block FTP access or in turn grant it. Not relative to WPMU DEV in any way, shape, or form.

    What is the host name?

    It could be any that you have mentioned or possibly just sitename.com. In addition, in FTP clients you do not use http:// - just the hostname.

    Thank you for being a WPMU DEV Community Member!
