Can't find public.html folder on installation.

Hi--

Pumped to start my first wordpress site. I've followed the instructions in your manual: https://premium.wpmudev.org/manuals/wpmu-manual-2/using-ftp-to-install-wordpress-mu/.

Once I connect the ftp I can't find the public.html folder I'm supposed to paste the wordpress files into. All I see are the root folder "/" which contains three other folders: logs, Maildir, and mtsidulko.com (my domain). None of these folders contain the public folder. I tried pasting the files into the mtsidulko.com folder but when I direct my browser to my site it says "Error establishing a database connection."

I'm using dreamhost for my hosting and domain. Much thanks in advance for your help.
