Transferring The Files

To get our html page and files to the Raspberry Pi we will be using WinSCP.

Once WinSCP is installed we will open it up and put in raspberrypi.local for the Host name. You can also enter the username and password now or it will prompt you for that info later.

Now we will click Login.

Once we are connected and logged in we will be put in the /home/pi directory. The left side window is your pc and the right side window is the Raspberry Pi

We need to go up two directories. So double-click on the folder with the up arrow twice.

Now we are in the root folder. We need to get to /var/www/html, Double-click on the folder labeled var, then double-click on the folder labeled www, and finally double click the folder labeled html

We first need to delete the index.html file currently there. Then drag the files downloaded previously to this directory.
