Hello, I'm new to all this. I have just connected to FTP via FileZilla but I upload a few test pages but can't seem to load them. So basically, my question is, where do we upload files to. In FileZilla I am in the root folder. Is this correct. Thanks, Daniel

If you are install apache, must location in /var/www I am sorry my english, i speak spanish
If your goal is to create a website, the first thing you need to do is install a webserver. Where you need to upload your files will depend on your choice of webserver. Apache is one of the most popular choices. On Ubuntu 14.04 with Apache, you would upload your files to /var/www/html This article should help point you in the right direction: https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-install-linux-apache-mysql-php-lamp-stack-on-ubuntu-14-04

One of the most common steps to take when setting up a new server is to install a LAMP stack. LAMP stands for Linux, Apache, MySQL, and PHP. These individual components, when used together, allow us to host dynamic web content like websites and web apps on our server. We will demonstrate how to install these pieces and configure a basic setup for Ubuntu 14.04 in this guide.
