Caddy 2, file server using route (caddy.json

I’m using this config.json

{
“apps”: {
“http”: {
“servers”: {
“example”: {
“listen”: [
“127.0.0.1:3000”
],
“routes”: [
{
“match”: [
{
“path”: [
“/”
]
}
],
“handle”: [
{
“browse”: {},
“handler”: “file_server”,
“root”: “./static”
}
]
}
]
}
}
}
}
}

And when I open localhost:3000, file browser appears, I want to open the file browser only when I go to localhost:3000/static, so I change the
“path”: [
“/”
]

to
“path”: [
“/static”
]

And the result is

  • localhost:3000 -> blank page
  • localhost:3000/static -> This localhost page can’t be found

How to co configure the route ?

Thanks

Path is just a matcher, with the path /static and a root of ./static, Caddy will look in ./static/static, which probably doesn’t exist.

Use root . and match path /static.

I’d also advise using absolute paths rather than relative. The latter can seriously confuse things occasionally.
