While updating some plugins on my Wordpress site recently, I encountered a critical error, which I suspect to be the result of an update failure. I can't access WP-Admin and so used Filezilla to try and identify the plugins folder and temporarily disable all plugins. The problem is, when I try and use SSH to get access to the site, I cannot identify any folders labeled WP-Content or Plugins. I'm a fairly novice web developer, so is there something I am missing here? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    that looks like the top level root of a Linux/*nix environment, the equivalent of C:/ on a PC. httpdocs looks close to a common public webroot, but it will depend on how that server was initially set up

  • To add to @TomJNowell's comment: var/www/ is often a location to look for website files. They might be in a subdirectory—for instance, most of my sites are located in /var/www/vhosts/ on their respective Linux servers.
