I'm experiencing some weird behavior on the google compute engine. I made a new instance with ubuntu on it. I installed a node app I'm working on, pulled code from github etc...
then I installed mongodb and nginx. The weird thing is, every time I leave the session, and reconnect, my mongodb and nginx installation files disappear.
for example, when I install nginx I find the nginx installation on
/etc/nginx where I can find like
nginx.conf. but when I left the compute engine console session, and reconnected later, that directory was gone. same thing is happening with mongodb.
my node installation under
/home/abdul/mystuff doesn't disappear though.
is this normal? is it a setting?
- this is an ubuntu image (idk which version, and not sure how to check)
- using the following to install nginx:
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install nginx
- result of command
