Question

Setup code-server on Ubuntu on a digital ocean droplet

As I was following the tutorial on the same topic at (https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-set-up-the-code-server-cloud-ide-platform-on-ubuntu-18-04) I tried to setup code server like they show on the main installation page on code-server (https://github.com/cdr/code-server/blob/v3.5.0/doc/guide.md). Using the command code-server --help shows that the server is running.

I also installed nginx and use the setting shown on the installation page but when I try to access the page there is only a 403.

Is there any updated guide on how to setup code-server 3.5 that works?

Hi there @ironyhAngler,

I could suggest following the steps from this answer here:

The only thing that you would need to change is the wget command and specify the version that you need to install.

Another thing that you could try is to use the 1-Click installation available on the DigitalOcean Marketplace:
