Question

Why Cant I Login Into My Site

This is two weeks since I created my droplet and I still cant see anything at all.

I know im must be doing somethign wrong but im getting very tired of it all.

I cant connect Dreamweaver to the virtual host or default directory.

I can log in as root or the user. But neither point or allow me to navigate to the page that is visible when I go to my wwwsite.com

Thats pretty much how it is, after 2 weeks.

I kaugh really as it says that a droplet can be set up in a minute but it doesnt say it takes 100 hours to figure out how to see the files you upload. I know its my fault, but I still cant figure it out. If anyone has any helpful clues that would be appreciated, but honestly, whats more frustrating is people saying unhelpful things, you know like just type in var/www/whatever, as that DOES NOT WORK. The root and the site name I have created int he droplet are BOTH above the public_html site folder. I can navigate there in filezilla.

I am going back to bed and probably wont smash my head against this one for a few days now as its too depressing.

Oh, please dont delete my question AGAIN.

When logging into your droplet as the root user via Filezilla you are taken to the directory /root but you are not locked in this directory. You can navigate up to the filesystem root by clicking on the top item shown in the remote folder in Filezilla which should be ... Once in the root directory / you can navigate down to /var/www/html which is the default for Apache based servers or to /usr/share/nginx/html for servers using nginx as the web server.
