I'm trying to set up a website on a Google Cloud VM, and have been struggling the whole day with this.
I've currently got a VM running Debian GNU/Linux 8 (jessie) and VestaCP.
The website is currently up ("example.com powered by Vesta"). What I'm trying to do now is figure out how to access the relevant folder to upload the contents of the website.
I've been trying to do this with FileZilla:
- I can connect to the VM server itself using the external IP and the SSH keys, but I don't have permission to the website folder (home/admin/web/example.com). I can access most other folders, but cannot move files into them - so I suspect this is an issue with the user account that I'm connecting with, but I have no idea how to tell or how to rectify this.
- I've tried setting up FTP access through Vesta, but when putting in the settings (username, password, IP, port 21) into Filezilla, the connection times out.
I've been trying to read up on this topic, but I don't even know where to begin. If someone can tell me how to set FileZilla up, or just a place to learn about this stuff, that'd be great.
