So I've set up and configured my server using the Linode how to's. I've successfully connected FileZilla to the server and I can navigate the directories and read log files etc. I've also tested a basic HTML and it displays when I enter the IP address of the server.

Now I just want to load my website onto the server and it won't start the transfer. Not even a single HTML page will transfer.

I have tried changing the permissions with: sudo chmod u+rwx
But when I check them with: ls -l
I get: total 0

Not sure what to try next, any help is appreciated.
