Let me start off by saying I have no idea what I am doing. I’ve never used digital ocean before and all the other times I’ve created websites, the host, server and all of that have already been created for me.
That being said, I really need to know how to get set up for a site. Right now I have a site with a different host and server and I need to update the site so I want to house this new site on a temp site with a simple ip so I can update and make changes to the site without disturbing the current site. Once the site is done, I want to be able to transfer everything over to the new site.
If someone can walk me through the process of setting everything up I would greatly appreciate it. I’ve read through the tutorials and some of the other forum questions and it just isn’t working for me.
I need to get this up and running as soon as I can, so if someone could help me out as soon as they can I would be very, very happy :)
