How do I go about uploading a site to a port on the IP?

I have a Laravel API I want to upload to a DigitalOcean droplet. I want to upload it on to a port on the IP. I am not sure if I am using the correct jargon when I say “port on the IP”

Basically, I want my API to connect when I type in where port is the port number.

I have made a .conf file in /etc/apache2/sites-available. The code is below:

	DocumentRoot "/var/www/html/hotelguide/public"
	<Directory /var/www/html/hotelguide/public>
		AllowOverride All
		Order allow,deny
		Require all granted
		Allow from all

I used 8037 as a random port as some were already in use (its not my droplet, its a droplet I share with other people)

I have not changed any other file, nor added any other file either

Thank you


…I am a little unclear: are you asking how to upload content to your website folder, or are you asking how to properly configure your Laravel Website so that it can run your API and allow remote connections?

Have you tried to connect yet using the site config you describe above? Have you enabled that site config yet?
