@Woet What kind of reply is that…?

Which tutorial did you use? If you give some more information, for examply about your droplet, what you did and if the logs show any usefull information, we could give you some advice what to do. It is recommended to use SFTP because its safer and better to use these days. You can find a tutorial about that right here If you want to use SFTP, FTP or anything; make sure you got your firewall setup correctly. It should allow different kind of ports (for FTP 21 and passive port range for example 30000-50000).

Please use SSH/SCP/SFTP/rsync-over-ssh instead of FTP:
