Thumbnails not showing, but originals are?!? (narrowed down to server specific error)

Hello, I’m using a meteor stack with GridFS for file uploads. The files work and load correctly in my local build and on AWS connected to the same DB, but on my digitalocean instance only the original image links will load, and the thumbnails just… don’t appear (the weirdest thing!).

I’ve installed the graphicsmagick dependency and the file is actually served to the client with no errors, it just cant be viewed, not even when accessing the file link directly.

No errors in my meteor logs or on the client… I’m baffled. Any suggestions?

This happened to be a problem with how I installed GraphicsMagick. You can’t install it via apt-get. See my answer to my question here:
