Image upload into ubuntu available in droplet

I wish to host my blog website developed on MEAN stack in digitalocean. For the blog, I will be uploading images to show it on my website. I would like to know whether I can store images in Ubuntu file system itself (droplet) instead of going for digitalocean space. Please someone confirm if this possible.

Thanks in advance.

It is possible. My droplet has ~25 GB of storage, so I would assume yours has that much, as well. You might use some sort of FTP (file transfer protocol) to transfer your html/css files, along with your image files. Depending on how you call the image files from your html/css, your file structure should conform. For example, if you have something like

<img src="myImg.jpg" alt="please reload>

then make sure “myImg.jpg” is in the same directory as your source html/css files. Good luck.

  • Thanks mate for your answer. I would like to know whether image upload is possible thru express REST API to droplet storage instead of FTP.
