Access droplet via web browser

Hi, I have gone through all the questions already asked and no ideas for the problem I’m having. I have installed a droplet with Ubuntu 18.04 and MongoDB. I have installed bigchainDB, everything seems to work. I can access via SSH. However I need to be able to access the droplet via the ip address and in particular port 9984. I can’t access the droplet via the ipdress, let alone the port number. Any ideas? This is my droplets IP address -


Hi, I haven’t, do I need to in order to be able to access the droplet via the IP address? If so, where would I find the instructions to do so? Thanks.

Have you installed a webserver? Apache for instance

I managed to install apache and I also opened up the ports 9984 sudo ufw allow 9984/tcp and restarted apache - sudo systemctl reload apache2

When I access my IP address now, the apache pages comes up. However I need to access no the bigchaindb root url which apparently can be 9984 or 5000. I have opened up both ports and I’m getting nothing.
