Hi there, Yesterday I installed ghost on my webfaction account. I followed these instructions: http://www.howtoinstallghost.com/how-to-install-ghost-on-webfaction-hosting/ And everything went ok, except that i (we) don't have access to /var/www/ since this is not open for everyone who is on the same server. So I created my own folder and installed ghost from there which went well. It's now installed and working http://mtbtransx.com hooray!

I'va also installed ghost locally which went also ok. And now I want te create my own theme folder structure and get familiar with ghost.. The thing is I'm not very familiar with ssh and linux commands ( I can change dir's and copy stuff and things like that) but what I would like to know is if I can ftp to the ghost folders ( I can't find them anywhere in my application folders (webapps) from webfaction. So I can easily copy new themes/files which I develop locally first.

Thanks, hope my question is clear.

It looks like you installed the ghost application into a different user account, so the files you're looking for aren't under your home directory, but under the additional-user's home directory. You can access them via FTP as usual, the only difference being that you would log in with the username of the additional user running node, rather than your primary WebFaction user.

Hope that helps!
