Host files on webserver

is there a way to put pdf files on the webserver so that they can be accessed from any client?
I’ve tried putting them in the directory ‘Program Files\Inductive Automation\Ignition\webserver\webapps\main’ on my Ignition server but cannot access the files using ‘http://IP_IGNITION_SERVER:8088/main/xxx.pdf’

Never mind.
I open the files directly from our fileserver now using"\\FILESERVER\DIR\xxx.pdf")

I tried this, I have the Root Directory in the File explorer set to C:\Program Files\Inductive Automation\Ignition\webserver\webapps\main of the server pc and I am having some interesting issues. If, I open the client from the server pc (using remote desktop) I can access all the files that I have saved to this directory. As shown here:

However, if I open the client from my pc I only see the following:
Furthermore, if I open this from any other pc in my plant when I access this screen, the files that show up in the file explorer window are of the client pc itself and not from the server pc.
My pc and all the other client pc are on the same network yet they are not on the same network as the ignition server pc.
I understand this is an old thread but, I am sort of stumped thanks.
