    What do you want to upload? If a website, then I think that you should go to "www"

    upload your html files to the www folder.
    if in the www there is a folder named html then upload it in that folder

    Go to digitalocean.com and read their tutorials, they have plenty for many OS.

    you have to install a webserver like apache or nginx on it first
    so it can serve html files
    if its an ubuntu vps just type
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install apache2
    on a terminal to install apache on it
    by default apache server will be on /var/www/
    so you just need to move your files there.

    You don't upload your website as the root user. Create a domain on the control panel first to have dns entries automatically created for the domain. Adding website is more than just uploading files but control panels just make it easier.
