You should see a directory called “public_html” Type: cd public_html to move into that folder. (cd stands for change directory.) Type: ls to see where you are. You should see your index.php file Editing your index.php file Type: nano index.php to open your index.php file and begin editing Edit your file, willy nilly When done editing, use ctrl + x to close the file You’ll be asked if you want to save; say y and to return to the command line Refresh your tilde page in your browser to see your new website Note: If at any time you feel you made a mistake in editing, you can exit and n to not save. see the advanced ssh key guide for more information and cool tips :)
