Question

After setting up WordPress on Droplet is still showing Apache It Works! Page?

  • Posted August 12, 2013

I’ve followed the instructions here: https://www.digitalocean.com/community/articles/how-to-migrate-wordpress-from-shared-hosting-to-a-cloud-server-with-zero-downtime AND here: https://www.digitalocean.com/community/articles/how-to-migrate-wordpress-from-shared-hosting-to-a-cloud-server-with-zero-downtime But when I pull up the site it still shows the default WordPress page. I should note that I put the wordpress files not directly into the /var/www/ folder but into /var/www/wordpress/, I’ll be hosting multiple sites, so that made sense. But I made what I thought where the necessary changes in /etc/apache2/sites-available/nameofsite.com (I did use my actual domain name, not nameofsite.com) to handle this change: <VirtualHost *:80> ServerName nameofsite.com DocumentRoot /var/www/wordpress/ </VirtualHost> <VirtualHost *:80> ServerName www.nameofsite.com Redirect permanent / http://nameofsite.com/
