Use FileZilla

With this setting
“`Host : sftp://IPORDOMAIN
Username : your username e.g root
Passwort : you know it

see my guide here
or just search around digitalocean

You can use an SFTP client to upload files to your droplet – see How To Use Filezilla to Transfer and Manage Files Securely on your VPS. If you’re running a LAMP stack, the files should be stored in /var/www/html.
