FreeBSD install rights

I don’t seem to be able to install ports on my FreeBSD droplet. Does the default user have sudo / access rights to install?

Also, I couldn’t see packages I was looking for.

It could be that root access is there but without sudo, try su - and see whether it gets you root shell.

I’ve got sudo access, but I don’t actually see the ports directory under /usr
