Thank you. Great video…very clear. Have you ever done a video on how to access the wordpress files on Server Pilot using ftp? Given that it doesn’t have a cpanel I am at a loss to work out how to get into the wordpress theme.

how much realtime traffic can it handle ? is 10$ per month a good plan if you have 40,000-50,000 visits a day ?

Hey TrenchTech. You’ve helped me out hugely with your awesome turorial videos, and I was wondering if you have any tutorials explaining how to install a SSL certificate (Comodo purchased via Namecheap) onto a DigitalOcean Ubuntu 16.04.1 LTS server? All articles I have found leave crucial parts out beginners like me don’t know. Like how and where to actually install the .crt and .ca-bundle files onto the server.

Iv’e tried following this article but scratch my head not knowing how to upload things to the server:

Thanks again in advance for any of your insight and suggestions. You rock. Tiff.

Great tutorial, thanks! But one question, do I have to login to the server and performe updates or clean anything up to keep the server up to date? Says on serverpilot that “important updates installs automatically”.

I currently use bluehost for my wordpress site. Is using digital ocean and server pilot faster? I dont want to go through all of this and then it’s basically the same. As of now, my site on bluehost is slow. I have it optimized and all, but still sucks. Just curious.

the console never lets me fully type the password before it goes through

I spent last 6 hours trying to setup DO server with Laravel Forge with no success. And I solved everything in just 10 minutes. You did the god’s work here, thank you my dude.
Edit: The CyberDuck is garbage. It has 1kbps upload speed. Noice.

Is this secure and safe? I’ve read other tutorials that include making firewalls and what not.

I’m trying to connect my server but I keep receiving a message that says “Installation failed. Your server has SSH password authentication disabled. Please try installing ServerPilot manually.” How do I fix this?

how much time it needs to attach a domain with digital ocean VPS so how long a live site will be down.

Thanks for the tutorial. I tried digital ocean a few years ago and was never quite able to get it working the way it should have been and crashed every time we had a big movie screening. I think serverpilot configuring everything may be the best bet as our current server was bought by a bigger company and is now on such a decline

plz one more video for SSL certificate, how to use https:// for our domain who made the wordpress site by following yourserver pilot method..
