Get Set Up With WordPress · Lesson 6 ·


When you navigate to a newly installed WordPress website, you'll see a default theme with some default content in use. So how exactly do you change the code in WordPress and get your website's content live? This can be done with an FTP (File Transfer Protocol). In this lesson, I’ll show you how to connect to your server with Cyberduck—a free FTP application.

FTP = File Transfer Protocol. For this course, we'll be using Cyberduck. You can download the best option depending on the machine your working on. Install it, and once you have it in, you can open it up, and we can set up our server. 

Don't worry about any 'unsecure connection' warnings, just click through them.
