Can't access Volume from NGINX

I have a Droplet running named XXX.

Inside /etc/nginx/sites-enabled/XXX.xx

I have the following configuration.

server {

   server_name XXX.xx  www.XXX.xx;

   location / {
     proxy_pass http://localhost:5000;
     proxy_http_version 1.1;
     proxy_set_header Upgrade $http_upgrade;
     proxy_set_header Connection keep-alive;
     proxy_set_header Host $host;
     proxy_cache_bypass $http_upgrade;
     proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-For $proxy_add_x_forwarded_for;
     proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-Proto $scheme;

    location /images/ {
        alias /mnt/XXXblob/images/;

    listen 443 ssl; # managed by Certbot
    ssl_certificate /etc/letsencrypt/live/XXX.xx/fullchain.pem; # managed by Certbot
    ssl_certificate_key /etc/letsencrypt/live/XXX.xx/privkey.pem; # managed by Certbot
    include /etc/letsencrypt/options-ssl-nginx.conf; # managed by Certbot
    ssl_dhparam /etc/letsencrypt/ssl-dhparams.pem; # managed by Certbot


Before that I also have runned

sudo chown -R www-data:www-data /mnt/XXXBlob/images/

When I look up /etc/fstab it has the following content.

LABEL=cloudimg-rootfs / ext4 defaults 0 0 LABEL=UEFI /boot/efi vfat defaults 0 0 /dev/disk/by-id/scsi-0DO_Volume_XXXBlob /home/portal/XXXBlob ext4 defaults,nofail,discard 0 2

Any help are appreciated!

Hi there,

According to the fstab, your volume should be mounted at /home/portal/XXXBlob. What is the output of the following command:

df -h

What I could suggest here is to mount the volume not on /mnt but inside your document root, so for example if your website files are hosted at /var/www/html/ you could mount the disk to images folder at /var/www/html/images.
