There are some basic command line commands you'll want to Google and learn, but for this tutorial you only need a few:
ls= list files and folders in current directory
cd= change directories
nano= a command line text editor
ls to see where you are. You should see a directory called "public_html"
cd public_html to move into that folder. (cd stands for change directory.)
ls to see where you are. You should see your index.php file
nano index.php to open your index.php file and begin editing
Edit your file, willy nilly
When done editing, use
ctrl + x to close the file
You'll be asked if you want to save; say y and to return to the command line
Refresh your tilde page in your browser to see your new website
Note: If at any time you feel you made a mistake in editing, you can exit and n to not save.
