I am setting up a Webserver using Debian. I am a beginner so I have installed LAMP. How do I move forward? How do I upload my files? Can I use FTP or how do I uploud it?

I used the guide on Digitalocean to setup LAMP.

Thanks for helping!

I am installing phpmyadmin to link myphp website with the database. I dont know how to do on the “Create the htpasswd file” in the guide

Thanks! :)
