Hello and welcome to Digitalocean

Here you go :

Host: sftp://Your_IP
User: root (or your username)
Password: Your password

@nayara you save your Data here /var/www/html

We do not provide any droplet images with FTP running by default as it is an inherently insecure protocol. SFTP is running on all new droplets on port 22 and can be accessed with your root login credentials using Filezilla. When logging in as root you will start out in the /root directory but will have access to access any directory you require.

I found this on my own journey here - I hope it helps:

This article will teach you how to use Filezilla to transfer and manage files securely on your VPS.

You can find it in welcome email. Sample is shown below :

  1. See in your welcome email :
Droplet Name: host.sriyog.com
IP Address: 206.189.XXX.YYY
Username: root
Password: 3298d828d37f322DDe8375ac9
  1. Be sure to change your droplet password.
  2. Open your any file transfer protocol tool and using your details you can easily login to the server.

How I get FTP login with Filezilla?without update ssh key

Hello,

By default, SFTP uses the SSH protocol to authenticate and establish a secure connection. Because of this, the same authentication methods are available that are present in SSH.

Although passwords are easy to use and set up by default, we recommend you create SSH keys and transfer your public key to any system that you need to access. This is much more secure and can save you time in the long run.

Please see this guide to set up SSH keys in order to access your server if you have not done so already.

If you can connect to the machine using SSH, then you have completed all of the necessary requirements necessary to use SFTP to manage files. Test SSH access with the following command:

ssh sammy@your_server_ip_or_remote_hostname

Hope that this helps!

SFTP is a secure way to transfer files between local and remote servers. Much more secure than FTP, this protocol uses an SSH tunnel to establish a connection and uses encryption to transfer files in an interactive session.
