Chances are if you’re reading this you’re using the self-hosted version of WordPress(.org) rather than the WordPress.com version.

WordPress typically lives inside the /public_html/ folder. Some websites store the WordPress files inside a “wp” folder, which would be stored in /public_html/wp/.

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

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