Is there a way to access images on my droplet from the web browser?

  • Posted October 31, 2014

My droplet IP is, and I have chmod 777’d the file located at (and named) /home/brdstr/eff.txt

I am trying to access the file with this URL in the browser:

This txt file of couse should be accessible in that directory if all files (including png and jpg) are accessible.

The droplet is running Ubuntu as well btw.

This tutorial no longer works. The mysql package used in there is no longer available.

I would recommend installing a web server such as nginx or apache

that will allow you to serve files
