  15. You are the best. I solved a few of my problems. Simple and clean, thank you.
    And your pronunciation is good for being a Youtube teacher 😀
    Thanks god he is not talking with Indian accent 😂

  16. "So i'm gonna click 'Generate' and I'm gonna move my cursor around in this gray area. This will generate the key file…." LOL

  17. Helpful video! Thank you!
    Do you happen to know the name of the file where the html documents are stored?
    I just can't find my simple html files after upload in Filezilla.

  18. You didn't show us where in all them directories the home directory is for the website? You stop short on your video's every time. You do make good videos and I'm making slow progress but one video just leads to the next. Craziness. Setting up Google Cloud is so difficult for people just starting out.

    You forgot to tell us that you DON'T HAVE WRITE PERMISSIONS.

    To enable write permissions go to SSH in VM Instances, once you're inside SSH you type in the following.

    sudo chmod 777 /var/www/html and it'll enable write permissions. When you're done with what you need to do change it back to 755
