I’m trying to configure the 1-click Ghost droplet for my site. I want it installed in a subdirectory, which I set as the URL while configuring the droplet ( and it is installed as expected. When I then try to visit, I get a 403 error since there is no homepage. I want to setup a static HTML file for this homepage at I’m having trouble figuring out where to place this index.html file when using SFTP to connect to the server. Does anyone know where I should place this file?

Figured it out - if others need it for future reference, place your index.html file at /var/www/ghost/system/nginx-root and change permissions to 644 (chmod 644 index.html)
