I just purchased a webfaction site at:
currently if you inspect the source you'll see that my webpage points to some handy swimming facts. That's nice and all, but I'd like to be able to edit my page! I accessed my server IP using Filezilla and I find the following folders:
bin lib logs webapps
lib has python in it - all other directories are empty...
So if my index.html isn't in /home/coltonp or in any of those sub directories, than where the gosh dang heck is it? How am I loading those sick ass swimming deets if NOTHING is on my server? Seriously, nothing. Am I making some sort of fundamental error? I assumed there would be some html files and maybe some web app framework stuff setting up that chincy lil swimming page.
I tried placing index.html at the root of /home/coltonp as well. This did not do anything.

Your index.html should go at /home/<username>/webapps/<applicationname>/.
When you are connecting via Filezilla you would want to click on the webapps folder and then your application name and post your changes to that folder.
Here is the Docs to creating a simple website that may help as well.
