    Hi All,

    I’ve built a website using WP with MAMP on my iMac. I’m now trying to replicate the work i’ve done on a server i’m renting.
    This server has got an issue: the URL and the Folder where you need to copy the files do not match. I mean by this that the url “www.example.com” reads from example.com/httpdocs .
    this might be quite normal for most of you but I am now a bit lost as i’m trying to install the theme and plugging via the dashboard; the dashboard asks for the FTP target and is getting rejected by the server when trying to write on example.com. how can I tell WP to write under example.com/httpdocs ?

    also, I’ve FTPed the themes and plugging myself and I get a blank page with the specific them i used…

    Thanks in advance for your help,
    Nicolas
