How I get FTP login with Filezilla?

I want login in my server with Filezilla. Where I get my credentials?


Hi I need help as well. Im logged in but I don’t see Var/www/, I only see Var/ on my filezilla

But where is the “public_html” folder? Only have root folder with some folders with name strange.

I have the same problem as a windows user it seems to be hard to have the same functionality as rsync.

Hello and welcome to Digitalocean

Here you go :

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

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

  1. See in your welcome email :
Droplet Name:

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.

General Takeaway : DON’T USE FTP, IT’S NOT SAFE! There’s a learning curve, but level up soldier!

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.


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
