Uploading my website through digitalocean host

October 26, 2014 6.1k views

I have pruchased a hosting in digitalocean and I want to upload my website.
I already have a domain in GoDaddy that used to work on Godaddy’s host and it worked well.
For now I have tried to change the dns things and and nameservers but it’s still not displaying(Show:“Page not found”).
I tried to upload my website files with zilafile and got exitcode 1 error via sftp(port 22) and :
“ECONNREFUSED - Connection refused by server” via ftp(port 21).
Help please.

    I tried to connect the server with putty and its close the window after I try to fill the unix password.
    Where can I get this password?
