Glossary F FTP

FTP

FTP stands for File Transfer Protocol and is the simplest concept available for editing files on a server. You can interact with the entire WordPress filesystem, including your own Child Theme, to make any changes to PHP, HTML, or CSS files and then upload them back to the server to display to your website visitors. The recommended FTP program to use is Coda 2, but there are many free and paid alternatives available around the web.
