File Structure shown via File Manager. WordPress sites have directories in "public_html).
In public_html are the WordPress files for your (first) website under this hosted account.
On a multi-site host, all sites are under "public_html" -- expand that directory.
Except for your first/primary site, each additional URL/domain has its own directory containing the WordPress files for that site.
You can navigate via the left or right pane, but only the right pane shows files.
Here we see inside a secondary domain's directory.
In File Manager, right-click to get direct file editing options
Here is a "code edit" of one file, which aligns the command lines nicely
FileZilla -- a great FTP client for PC of Mac. Here it has no connection -- yet.
The left pane lets you navigate your local computer's hard disk to find files or create a new directory.
I suggest setting up a new directory for experimentation.
When you enter the Host, Username, and Password, and hit Quickconnect, the right pane is active.

A GoDaddy option to look at your applications.
Here we see all the WordPress sites in the account. Each has its own file directory and database.
Looking at the details on one site, we see admin info. Switch to the second tab...
...Files & Tables to see what database you have and the table prefix.
Further down that screen you see all the tables listed in the database.
Now switch to phpMyAdmin. On left we see the databases available.
Select a specific database to get the table listing.
I am selecting the options table. I'll choose to "Browse" it.
Now we see individual records inside the table. Click on one to change it.
No changes made yet. I'm going to select the "active_plugins" entry.
Click the item to get an edit window. If you erase the entry here, your plugins are deactivated instantly.
Or, you can choose the expanded edit window. All changes are instant when you hit enter.
Please make backups before trying phpMyAdmin options.
To leave phpMyAdmin simply close the window.
