    Edit existing WordPress site

    Good evening, we have a website which was designed by someone few years back who are since long gone. I am doing some network and server consultancy for this company. One of the items they have asked me is to also look into adding some content to their website. I have access to the hosting account on GoDaddy. I was also told this individual designed the website using WordPress and then uploaded the content to GoDaddy. My question is if I wanted to edit this site, how would I go about doing so? Do I need to download all the files off GoDaddy via ftp and then edit using WordPress followed by re-upload? Does WordPress even work like that i.e. offline on a local computer? Or do I need to install it directly via GoDaddy.
    Please pardon my ignorance as this is not my forte. Im just worried about crashing the site completely.


    Thanks

    You log into wordpress, example: mycompany.com/wp-admin

    You'll have to know the admin login and password.

    You then edit, add, delete content using the wordpress dashboard.
    Lots of tutorials and youtube vids on wordpress.

    You must need admin panel login and password to enter wordpress dashboard, once you are there you can do more than just edit.

    Hi there,

    WordPress editing and customizing works doing by WP dashboard on live. If your site belongs to WP so you have a WP dashboard. So login your WP dashboard and edit your site desirely.
