An FTP client can be used to explore the file path to the SMF files. More information is available at the FAQ [[FTP - How do I use FTP]]. The forum site host should be able to provide information about directory paths.

The FTP local path to SMF is a directory path required by the package manager to set file permissions. It differs widely from one host to another, so you need to ask your host to provide you with this information.

Some examples of SMF directory (server settings) and FTP local path to SMF:


Control Panel Server Settings SMF directory FTP server FTP Local path to SMF
Plesk (in forum subdirectory of domain) /home/vhosts/domain.com/httpdocs/forum domain.com httpdocs/forum
Plesk (in main directory of subdomain sdn) /home/vhosts/domain.com/subdomains/sdn/httpdocs sdn.domain.com httpdocs
cPanel (in forum subdirectory of domain) /home/<username>/public_html/forum domain.com public_html/forum
cPanel (in main directory of subdomain sdn) /home/<username>/public_html/sdn sdn.domain.com public_html/sdn
