I downloaded the lastest version of the free Ubuntu Server (16.04.1) and set it up. I'm running it in a virtual machine, VMware to be exact, with a host OS of Win 10. I successfully connected to the inet address and got the "It Worked!" page.
In addition to VMware, I also have PuTTY running on the host.
To get to my question, it says:
You should replace this file (located at /var/www/html/index.html) before continuing to operate your HTTP server.
That would be great! Except, I have no idea how to do it. I can get to the file's location using the
cd command but that's it. How do I upload/put files on my server? I have the .HTML on my host OS but can't get it on my server. I might be doing this completely wrong anyways. The Internet's documentation on stuff like this isn't very good.
