How do I deploy React App along with headless WordPress CMS.

I have a React App that was created using the created-react-app boilerplate. The react app is fetching data from a WordPress API. Now I intend to deploy both the front-end and the back-end on my DO droplet that is already hosting multiple domains. How do I achieve this?

Here is what i already tried:

  1. I put the front-end files inside /var/www/
  2. I created a directory named **api ** inside /var/www/ and put all the wordpress files inside that directory.
  3. I had a .htaccess file inside /var/www/ so that all requests are routed through index.html
  4. My WordPress is configured. But when I access ** ** it redirects to a 404 page.

Please help solving the issue. Thanks in advance.
