Question

Missing www folder in /var/

Hey! I just set up my first droplet using Ubuntu 12.04 x32. I added a user and gave them all permissions and whatnot.

I also set up FileZilla so I could access my files and whatnot, and everything seems to be there…except the www folder. Anyone have any idea why this might be? I was planning on just throwing some test html files into it to test my domain out and everything.

Do you have apache installed? What is the default virtual host’s DocumentRoot?

The <code>www</code> folder is not created until you install Apache.
