I have a node app that I want to upload on openshift.

I have already managed to create a public/private key and am able to sftp to my server. However, when I enter what I see is the following:


I have no idea where I should drop my files. In other words, if I had a hello world index.html file, to which folder would I upload it to so as to see 'HELLO WORLD' when i went to example.com?

Very similar question on StackOverflow here

If you're looking to find the webroot of your application running its app-root/runtime/repo. However, I would strongly suggest you make changes through Git if you're altering code. If your uploading things like pictures or other data, you'll want to store them in your $OPENSHIFT_DATA_DIR which is located at /app-root/data/
