I just (maybe like two hours ago now), purchased a $5/mo DO VPS. I selected Ubuntu with LEMP pre-installed on the image.
Now I changed my domain to point at the IP (and it works, I get the “welcome to Nginx” page if I go to the IP/Domain Name), but I’m having issues uploading files.
I open Filezilla, input the server IP, “root” as the username and my password. I select SFTP as the type of connection.
However, after a few seconds I get the following error message:
Error: Authentication failed. Error: Critical error Error: Could not connect to server
Obviously this is really irritating as it basically means I can’t upload any sites. If anyone could help me out that’d be great.
