Question

How do I connect files to the server once SSH'd into the command line?

How can I link HTML and CSS files to my server? I have them on my computer, I have the domain name, what do I need to do to get the files onto the server and my website up and running?

Okay, I just finished that tutorial and now what? I see all these comments saying "I can’t access the /var/www/dsfafafe file… I didn’t even see that in the tutorial. I still have no idea how to connect files to my server.

Hi @ABlueWhale

You would normally use a program that supports SFTP, like FileZilla.

You can follow this tutorial - if you have setup the server with SSH keys, then you follow those instructions - otherwise you just use the username and password option. https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-use-filezilla-to-transfer-and-manage-files-securely-on-your-vps
