I'm trying to login WordPress by using a Filezilla client, but I'm not sure if my log in details are correct because I'm using the login details that I use to login my website as admin, but maybe I need to put the login I use in the hosting service?

You need to use FTP login details( Filezilla is FTP client) to log in.Get the details from your hosting provider.

WordPress login details don't work.

Also hosting login details are different to FTP login details.
