hi… i got problem here… i use root as username… then i point my domain (dns changed to digital ocean)… why my domain name not appear on server… so, where can i upload my file to my domain. ? thanks.


i not understand why filezilla cannot connect to server. i try in vultr and use root as a username… and can connect… what a wrong with digital ocean ?? is password wrong ? or any else ??

thanks for your reply…

sorry, i am newbie in sftp… can you tell me how to create a new user and password ?



I think by default root is not allowed to use SFTP, create a new user and give it a password then try again.

Hope this helps.
