Uploading site with SFTP and Dreamweaver?
Forgive the noobishness, I’ve never done this before. I’ve bought a domain, spun up a droplet, specified DO’s DNS servers with my registrar, accessed my droplet with PuTTY, changed the password and verified that digitalocean was hosting my domain name with whois. I’m using Adobe’s Dreamweaver to upload my site via SFTP, and Dreamweaver gave me a notice that I successfully connected. I uploaded a simple index.html file to the server and it seemingly went through Screenshot on photobucket but now when I try to access my site it says it’s down or reverts to my registrar’s generic site. What gives? Do I need to wait a little bit or have I skipped a step in setting up my site?
