Week 1 Activity: Simple Server

This week our assignment was to set up a simple server.

First, I made an account on Digital Ocean and created a droplet which gave me an IP address for my server and I created a password.

Then I downloaded a file from GitHub that our instructor had made with a basic server framework and functionality to track users that visit the site.

I uploaded this to my server using Fetch.

Then in the terminal I logged on to my server and installed those files and ran the server.

Once I got the message that the server was running I opened it in my browser:
