Where is the public_html folder where I can put the site files? I have just created a droplet. Can anyone guide me on this one? Thank you.

Failures to start are usually the result of some kind of misconfiguration. Check any changes you have made to the config file and ensure that they are correct. Check the apache error log to figure out what the problem is if you don’t see any obvious problems in the config file. There should be an error message pointing you to the source of the problem.

@andrew Hello andrew, I have just followed the instructions but when starting the httpd, it has failed, any idea why? Thanks by the way.

@andrew Thank you. I’m gonna try to follow the steps written there.

@azani Have you already installed Apache? Check out this tutorial: <br> <br>https://www.digitalocean.com/community/articles/how-to-set-up-apache-virtual-hosts-on-centos-6 <br> <br>It should get you headed in the right direction.

Thank you. Just one more thing, Could you guide me on the apache configuration and pointing the domain to the folder? I am not really familiar with it yet. Thank you.

still assuming you have centos… the folder is called HOME and is located in the root of the server, you normally log in and end up in your user profile path, something like ~ <br>Type cd / <br>the do a ls -l to show the folder <br> <br>you can create inside HOME a folder for each site and use apache config to point to the folder(s) based on the domain

I currently have the access through SFTP, I just need to know where should I place my files in order to run it. Thank you.

I’m assuming you are using Centos since you are asking about public_html. <br> <br>have you install vsftpd?

Well I know for apache, on ubuntu, its in the /var/www/ folder.
