How do you find your host name for IIS to connect your wordpress for update

By pjwashington ·
I have inherit a windows server (for wordpress website) with ISS installed (for wordpress) and configured. I am trying to update word press but it ask me for and FTP hostname , username, and password... I put the ip adress of our server as the host name with the correct username and password and I get " ERROR: There was an error connecting to the server, Please verify the settings are correct." the only thing I'm not sure on is the hostname being correct. May I please have some help to this problem?

IIS doesn't mean there is an active FTP server (What is ISS?)

by rproffitt Moderator In reply to How do you find your host ...

Also, you'll want to install and configure a secure FTP system because if you don't, you'll learn why very soon.

Example at https://winscp.net/eng/docs/guide_windows_ftps_server

-> In closing, inheriting such as system means you should start taking courses on Windows Server, IIS and whatever else you need to administrate.

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/iis/publish/using-the-ftp-service/ tells about FTP-servers in IIS. Have a look at the settings of your FTP-server and you know the answer to your questions.
