FTP usually shows the complete path of where the SMF files are located on the server. This path may be used in many places within the administration panel. There are differences from one host to another though, 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
