I have CiviCRM installed on my web site, and some answers on Stack Exchange tell me to change a file in CiviCRM, or to find my "civicrmroot". I know how to access the files on my server, using FTP or SSH or my control panel's "File Explorer". However, I don't know where to look for CiviCRM. Where is it?

If you're using CiviCRM 4.7 or higher, you can find this location by going to Administer menu » System Settings » Directories. Click the blue circle with the question mark, and note the value for [civicrm.root]. See screenshot: enter image description here
