No files on sever
I have a domain on my host. I have created no files or directories except assets and have not uploaded anything yet. Through FileZilla and DreamWeaver I connect with the ftp.mydomain.com just fine, but in both cases I only see a blank folder on the server. What am I missing?

You need to check with your hosting provider to make sure that you are accessing the primary web root folder (htdocs or public_html).
It sounds like you had already possibly installed WordPress using a 1 click install if it was already installed but you hadn't uploaded anything.

Most likely what's going on is the hosting company you are using only gives you access to the public/index folder of your site. Try uploading everything you have in your local folder into the folder that's appearing and see what happens.
