Anyone mind helping me with my Apache server? (Website)


#1

So I dropped like 5 dollars on a VPS with OVH because I know i’ll need it for future things…

Anyways!

I’m trying to make a website and I did install it correctly and what not, but i’m not sure how to access the Website files, I can’t find it anywhere in Filezilla and I am not sure really what to do! The only OS I have ever used has been Windows :stuck_out_tongue:

If you type 158.69.214.32 in URL you’ll see my progress thus far!

Any advice would be sincerely appreciated!

Thanks for bringing this forum back BTW :smiley:

Just google it, it’s probably /var/www?


#3

Another common location: /home/USERNAME/public_html

Did you install apache yourself? If so the default DocumentRoot should be /var/www you can find this in your httpd.conf usually found in /etc/apache2/conf/httpd.conf

If that doesn’t match what you see, try checking /etc/apache2/sites-available/default

You may wish to go with Digital Ocean instead of OVH. Comes preconfigured with various software you can deploy within seconds as “droplets” and on much faster hardware for the same price. They have a ton of tutorials for anything you want to learn as well.
