ftp username and password?

  1. Hello everyone,
    I am new to website building and am trying to set up ftp through filezilla. The set up guide at http://codex.wordpress.org/Using_FileZilla says I need an FTP username and password, which I get through "cpanel or website administration tool" I am not sure how to find either one- when I click on "manage my domain" under the domain tab in the dashboard, only a basic screen comes up with the registration info

    Is there another way I am supposed to access these tools (such as cpanel, etc) that will give me the info I need?

    Thanks!
    Eric

    The blog I need help with is ericrius.com.

  2. There is no FTP access to free hosted wordpress.COM blogs and we cannot install individual plugins or any themes into them The themes found on the internet are for wordpress.ORG installs which run on different software.

  3. The blog linked to your username is a WordPress.COM free hosted blog. If you are referring to a WordPress.ORG install then you need to post to the correct forum for that software at http://wordpress.ORG/support/

    Good I refreshed -

    @ericrius1 - the link you are looking at is for a WordPress.ORG install - you are on WordPress.COM.
