Question

Where are my websites files ? How can I access to my real files [using FTP client filezilla]?

Hi, I am newbie to cloud servers. I can manage to create an SSH file and connect to my root folder using my private key file. But I couldn’t see where is my website files stored. What I see in FileZilla is under root : .aptitude; .cache; .composer ; .ssh

Ps- I have hosted my Wordpress site via ubuntu droplet.

Update: successfully log into FileZilla ( but there is no var/www folder.

How can I access to my real files? Can you please guide me?

Regards roxus

Hello, @roxus76

Did you manually installed WordPress on your droplet? If that is correct the files should be stored in the same directory where you initially deployed the WordPress installation. As you mentioned usually this is the /var/www/html directory.

I will recommend you to check the web server’s config files (Apache or Nginx) and see where the document root is for the website.

Nginx:

``/etc/nginx/sites-available/*```

Apache:

/etc/apache2/sites-available/*

Hope that this helps!
