Can't connect to droplet via SFTP with FileZilla
I am trying to connect to my new droplet using FileZilla. I followed the instructions here
to setup FileZilla. However I receive the following errors:
Error: Network error: Connection refused
Error: Could not connect to server
After searching google I found that I may have to create a new user. So i followed the following tutorial to create a new user:
However that did not solve the problem either. I am at a lost for words. I am not sure what to do. i am trying to transfer a project that I was developing locally to the server. I am used to just ftp'ing the files over. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
(note: I tried to login as root and as the newly created user and still received the error)
