How do I locate my project files/directories in the console?

I launched my Flask app through the Digital Ocean Console by connecting to Dockerhub. Now when I connect to the console I can’t find my project files. I’ve tried the find command and also looked through some folders manually trying to find my project files without luck. What path are Flask apps typically copied to?

Hi there,

I believe that this would depend on your Dockerfile and how your Docker image is built.

However, keep in mind that with the DigitalOcean App Platform the storage is ephemeral meaning that if you make any changes via the App Platform web console, all those changes will be lost on the next deployment.

You should make your changes locally, and then push the new image, and after that deploy the new image with those latest changes.

Hope that this helps!
