Invoice Ninja V5 droplet issue from marketplace

I have installed Invoice Ninja v5 using marketplace, so all the hard work is done automatically on droplet.

Instructions are simple, once Invoice Ninja droplet is installed, open public IP in browser.

Well I tried installing Invoice Ninja droplet 2 times but the result is same. First time browser shows Invoice Ninja is being installed and after some time, it starts throwing error message of nginx “403 Forbidden”.

Nginx error log shows:

[error] 787#787: *3 directory index of "/var/www/html/ninja/public/" is forbidden,

Is anyone there who is facing the same issue and solved it?

Hi there,

Thanks for bringing that up, indeed I was able to replicate the problem. I will forward this to the Marketplace team.

In the meantime what you could do is to complete the installation manually by following the steps from the official forum here:

You can start from step 4. Let me know if you have any questions.


  • Thank bobby, but I am a newbie and do not want to mess up the VM (Already have done in past :))

    I will wait till the issue gets resolved by Marketplace team.

    • Hi there,

      Sounds like a plan! Just keep in mind that this specific 1-Click image is not maintained by DigitalOcean but by the Invoice Ninja team, so we can’t give any ETA on when they would sort it out.
