With the DigitalOcean serverless functions, and also any other serverless environment, you don’t have the same persistent filesystem as on your local machine.

Instead, you’ll use temporary storage for the duration of the function’s execution.

What you should do instead is to use an S3 storage like the DigitalOcean Spaces:

You can then use the @aws-sdk/client-s3 package. Here is a documentation guide on how to do that:

Hope that this helps!
