The DO console is designed for emergency access to your droplet, I understand it is a long lamented issue that piping (and some other things) doesn’t work like it should.

I tried redirecting the output to a file using the console, which seemed to work as expected.

  • SomeCommand > SomeFile.txt
  • SomeCommand >> AppendToSomeFile.txt

DO recommends accessing your server through an SSH client (I know it isn’t always possible). Either way, hopefully this helps.
