Hi all,

I tried to connect to my server through FTP Filezilla to find my opencart files but they are simply not there!
No index.php file whatsoever or config, nor any map named opencart.

Is there any way to get or download my opencart source code through the opencart admin side myself?

And does anyone have an idea why I possibly cant find my opencart (php) files on FTP or MyAdmin?
The problem is that I did not work myself on opencart until now, in case someone might ask "dont you know where you saved everything?!?"

Thanks in advance.

PS: I attached a screenshot

Firstly, I love the fact that you blanked out 'Desktop, Downloads, Dropbox, Favourites (etc).

Secondly, you are not in the correct area/folder on the FTP, ask your web hosting company where the files would be stored as it can vary by OS / software.

You are looking at your local site. You need to look in the right hand window at the external site and check with your web hosts where your files are normally uploaded. Normally it is public_html, www or a similarly named folder, but every hosting company is different.
