I have completed the setup of the Droplet and establishing the RSA key for Digital Ocean <> Github, as described in "Deploy to Production", but have encountered a problem such that I don't see the expected info.php file:

Your directory structure on DigitalOcean should now look like this:


  • hello-world/
  • index.html
  • info.php

I do not see an info.php file in my listing. Is this a problem, and if so, what's the best way to solve it? Also, I named the repo folder hello-world_dwa because I already had a repo called hello-world on GitHub.

My listing:

root@gw-dwa15:/var/www/html# ll
total 20
drwxrwxr-x 3 www-data www-data 4096 Feb 11 02:09 ./
drwxrwxr-x 3 www-data www-data 4096 Jan 10 16:38 ../
drwxr-xr-x 4 root     root     4096 Feb 11 02:09 hello-world_dwa/
-rw-rw-r-- 1 www-data www-data 6541 Jan 10 16:38 index.html

Hi Gerry -

This is not a problem. The info.php file is one that used to come on DigitalOcean LAMP servers by default. It looks like they've removed it in recent updates.

I'll update the notes to reflect this. Sorry for any confusion!

If you're curious, the info.php file (when it existed) just contained the output of the php command phpinfo() which is described in this note set: PHP: Error reporting
