I am new to DO and trying to upload my website to my Droplet.
I uploaded my website to root/srv/www/mywebsite/ and modified a file called: etc/nginx//sites-available/default to use the folder I just created
So I removed
then I restart my nginx server, by using the following commands:
sudo service nginx restart sudo systemctl reload nginx
But none of them worked.
Only when I changed back to use the /var/www/html inside default file, then the server starts to work.
