I am an inexperienced web developer, and I have yet to get my first client. I have prospective clients, however I am concerned about pitching them simply because I am unsure as to how I will access their pre-existing website to make changes. Different websites have different FTP access methods, and there are different server architectures, etc.
- Ask the owner of the website, who probably didn't build it, what it is built with and how I should access it
- Ask for the details of the original developer to ask them questions
Or is there some kind of simple fit-all method?
