        the base directory is probably public_html/blog if it's your main domain

            You might find it easier to check with Hostgator as they'll be able to see your account and give you the exact answer you're looking for.

            You can use their live chat site to contact them at HostGator Live Support

              FTP Details are normally the same as your hosting login details or your cpanel login details.

              So if you log into your hosting/cpanel thus:

              username = yourname

              Then your FTP username would be "yourname"
