FTP Access

  1. can anyone confirm whether or not i have access to my site using FTP?

    The blog I need help with is terraview31.wordpress.com.

  2. You don't - security reasons

  3. Alright thanks. What would i have to do to be able to have FTP access?

  4. There is no FTP access to free hosted WordPress.COM blogs and we cannot install plugins, upload third-party themes or edit templates or themes. Those found on the internet are for WordPress.ORG installs which run on different software.

    There is no upgrade that you can purchase from WordPress.com that provides FTP access. To get it you will have to hire a web host and set up a self hosted WordPress.org install.
