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
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
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
