How to best set up ServerPilot to work with Digital Ocean server
I recently signed up for ServerPilot after signing up to host with Digital Ocean. Shortly after creating a droplet and and uploaded app onto Digital Ocean Ubuntu server, I came across ServerPilot, signed up and connected to the server. However, I was hoping to get more functionality out of the services as I have gotten with CPanel interface.
My question is that now that I have connected to our server with Digital Ocean via ServerPilot, where do I go from here in order to access and manage files…
Is there a File Manager directory
How would I go about uploading new files / editing files that are already on the server
I read on a forum via Digital Ocean that I needed to install and connect ServerPilot control panel with our server when there was nothing on the server - Is it too late now that files have been uploaded on the server before stumbling upon ServerPilot?
Other than copies of PHP, MySQL, PhpMyAdmin - are there other applications needed to be installed via ServerPilot in order to host websites / apps?
Pardon my questions as I am trying to understand all of this - I came from dedicated server/CPanel background where everything needed has been pre configured by the hosting company, and all that’s needed are the files to be uploaded. If you may, please answer the above questions as it would help me understand how to make best use of cloud hosting. Thank you
