Setting index.html in filezilla for ubuntu server

I’ve installed apache2 and transferred the files through Filezilla to /var/www, but now I’m getting a 404 not found - not even the apache “it works” page.
I have an index.html file in /var/www so I don’t understand why it’s not working.

As of Ubuntu 14.04 the default web root for apache was changed from /var/www to /var/www/html

You can also try restarting apache with:

service apache2 restart
