How to view website with files hosted on a droplet?
I was following this tutorial to transfer files using filezilla.
And the files are uploaded onto the droplet which I can see using ls on the command prompt.
But there is no information about how to view the website that I’ve just pushed onto the server.
I don’t understand how to view my website. I go to http://dropletIp/root/WebsiteName/index.html or http://dropletIp/WebsiteName/index.html and I just get a 404 Not Found error, despite the fact that the files do exist on the server.
Is there a certain folder where I should upload the files that isn’t the root folder?
I just want to be able to see the website in a browser hosted on the droplet.
