View Full Version : Help logging in to upload new Wordpress theme

Hi all,

Just a bit of a problem when trying to upload a new theme to a Wordpress blog on my server. There are 3 fields on this wordpress page: Hostname, Username, Password. It's the first one I'm unsure of the info I need (is it generally found in control panel for my server?). The other 2 I guess are what I use to log into the server normally, as opose to via wordpress. See attached pic if it helps.

Thanks for any help!

Hi Paul

This is probably the same FTP hostname as you use in DW. Usually something like ftp.yourdomain.com (but not always). Check your site definitions in DW.

Hostname is your domain name.
If in doubt click the help link situated at top right of any WordPress window which should give you exact help information for the page you area on.
