File Manager or Application Folder on Root


I’ve installed Wordpress on my server with One-Click apps feature, my questions are : is there any available tutorials or docs of how to install file manager on the server, and when I was logged on to my SFTP i didn’t see my application (wordpress) folder, there are only .ssh (i forgot another folders).

Which is best running Wordpress on DO ? with the one-click apps image, or ‘configure it your self’ within Ubuntu using either Lamp / Lemp or do manual entirely.

Hey @pramadiputra -

Running the Wordpress One-Click is a good option if you prefer not to login to your droplet via SSH and install and configure everything via the commandline. Either way, I recommend getting familiar with the SSH/Commandline approach as it is much more powerful and versatile than SFTP or any web-based control panel.

You didn’t see any files because when you logged in via SFTP it placed you in the /root directory, but all the wordpress files are in /var/www/html directory.

To fix this you can either set /var/www/html as the starting directory in your SFTP program’s connection settings, or you can login, navigate UP a directory, and then go to var, www then html
