WordPress plugins are stored within the plugins folder, which lives inside the wp-content folder, which lives inside the WordPress installation folder.

Typically, this means the plugins are stored within the /public_html/wp-content/plugins.

If your WordPress software is installed in its own directory, the plugins folder may be something like /public_html/wp/wp-content/plugins where “wp” is the WordPress installation directory.

You’ll need one of the following to view the plugins folder:

  • FTP access
  • Web hosting control panel File Manager access
  • Install the File Manager plugin
