DigitalOcean droplets are great for small projects and testing out new applications. However, one common issue is that you may need to access files on the droplet. Here are some methods for accessing files on a DigitalOcean droplet:
1. Connect to the droplet via SSH
If you need to access the droplet’s files remotely, you can connect to it via SSH. To do this, launch a new terminal window and type the following command:
where droplet_name is the name of the droplet you want to connect to.
2. Access the droplet’s files using the droplet’s IP address
If you don’t have access to the droplet’s SSH key, you can also access the droplet’s files using the droplet’s IP address. To do this, open a web browser and type the following address:
PRO TIP: If you are not careful, you could easily access sensitive files on your DigitalOcean droplet. Make sure that you know what you are doing before accessing any files on your droplet.
where droplet_ip is the IP address of the droplet you want to access.
3. Use the droplet’s file sharing feature
If you have access to the droplet’s file sharing feature, you can access the files on the droplet using the file sharing feature. To do this, launch a new terminal window and type the following command:
ssh droplet_name file_name
where droplet_name is the name of the droplet you want to connect to, and file_name is the name of the file you want to access.
