Hi @endritkanani,

I can see your domain is pointing now to a DigitalOcean droplet. Most probably you needed to wait for your DNS to propagate.

Now to your other question, in order to point your website to load files from the /var/www folder, you’ll need to install a WebService - either Apache or Nginx. Since you haven’t mentioned which one you’ve chosen or even installed, I’ll provide you with the two articles which you can follow.

The first article will help you with installing Nginx among MySQL and PHP. If you have installed them, you can skip those steps and directly go to Nginx installation and configuration:

The next article will help with Apache. MySQL and PHP again are included but as said above you can skip those steps if you have already installed the services :
