In which folder do i put my php and other files intended for public view

Ok, i’m pretty new to digital ocean. I managed to install everything including php admin. i’m trying to upload my files through a deploying website because my files are hosted on bitbucket and github. Where should i deploy my files to? tried /var/www/html and /var/www/ but they don’t see to work.

you will upload files to your document root. if you install you LAMP following this tutorial then your document root is /var/www/html. that means you will upload files into html folder.

Thanks again, i realized i was pushing as web app instead of pushing through FTP
