After I create a droplet is a web server installed like nginx or apache or do I have to do that?

How can I tell if a web server is already installed - it was a friend who set up the droplet, so I don’t know if he also set up a web server.

you need to choose to set up the web server yourself since it depends on what you want to run on it… <br> <br>I’m with Nginx if you asked me which one is better…

In most cases you can check if there is anything listening on port 80: <br><pre>sudo netstat -plutn | grep 80</pre> <br>Droplets do not come with a webserver installed by default.
