Thumbnails not Generating in Drupal

I used the default Drupal droplet. When I upload an image to a piece of content, the thumbnail is not being generated.

If I remember correctly, I think this is what I did as well. It would be nice if Digital Ocean fixed this in the droplet.

First off, a warning. I’m no expert, there may be a better way to do this.

I was having the same issue, but I was able to fix it just now using the following command in the console:

sudo chown www-data -R /var/www/folder

Where “folder” in the line above, is the location of the thumbnails.
