I have NGINX installed on a VPN and I would like to access the "downloads" folder via https. I followed instructions given to me as follows:
In order to download your files from your vpn, you will move the download folder of deluge into nginx www folder. For example: downloads folder (/usr/share/nginx/www/downloads). Your files will be accessible at http://ip-address/downloads.
Change the configuration file is at /etc/nginx/sites-available/default to allow the downloads folder to be accessable via https.
Edit that file and you will see a line like root /path/to/root/folder/here <-- change this to your download location.
In that file I replaced
index index.html index.htm;
You also need to enable autoindex. By default, nginx will not list the files inside a folder (security reason).
Add these lines to the default file:
Which I did.
So far I cannot access the downloads folder and thought I would look for some help here.
Thanks very much
