A simple question from an admittedly stupid person

Hi, I’m totally new to DigitalOcean and to Ghost. Will someone please tell me where I find a step by step guide to the whole process from start to installing and modifying my theme. At this point I have only been able to setup a droplet. But when I go to the black login panel I can’t for the life of me enter my password. It seems absolutely impossible for a new user to use this system. Thanks, Mike.
