Question

I am connected to domain, how do I access my files

I have my droplet, I have a domain, I have changed the nameservers to be the Digital Ocean ones, and I have following the steps on (https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-set-up-a-host-name-with-digitalocean “How to Set Up a Host Name with Digital Ocean”).

I can even ping my domain’s URL and I get a good response. I have uploaded a website to there, but I don’t know how to access it.

Say if I wanted to load the files from “/home/test” on my server, how would I connect that to “www.mydomain.com/test”?

You need to install a webserver on your droplet: How To Install Linux, Apache, MySQL, PHP (LAMP) stack on Ubuntu 14.04. Once you’ve done that, browsing to jackapple.com should serve the contents of /var/www/html.

Hi, I think you are not uploading your files to the right path. Could you please tell me which OS is your droplets and where did you copy your files?
