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

Posted October 31, 2014 4k views

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.

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

that will allow you to serve files

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