Getting My Server To Display A Page

Hey, I am very new to dealing with servers and I have a very beginner-level question to ask. So I’ve set up my one-click MEAN server. Now lets say I want my server to display index.html that says Hello inside when someone goes to my IP address. What exactly are the steps needed to be taken there. Does index.html have to be in a specific place and what other configuration needs to be done. Thank you!

They should, and are, though the stack seems to be missing a few pieces (i.e grunt for the project) + it needs updating. Of course, this can be done by running a few initial commands, but for a one-click, it should be ready to go. That’s actually the first one-click image that I’ve tested that doesn’t seem to work out of the box.
