Total noob here. I recently created a digital ocean lamp server. I’ve already pointed my domain name to digital ocean name servers and my lamp ip. I know want to add a simple html file and have it display when someone types in my website. I have no idea what to do next and can’t find a solid answer online. Also, could you guys point me to some easy to understand lamp server basics. I’ve been exploring my server from my terminal but can’t get a good feel for the file directory.

In addition to @KFSys said, you can check out DigitalOcean App Platform for Starter plan. You can build and deploy 3 static sites for free.
The next step would be to decide how to proceed with your website. How you want to build it. There are a lot of static HTML themes which you can explore for your website.
Regarding LAMP stack. If you want to learn more about it, you can start with the basics - Apache2, PHP, and MySQL. These 3 will be enough for you to go forward and increase your knowledge.
