Hi there @mjj,

You need to make sure that the port that you are trying to access is open for everyone.

For example, if you are using the builtin Ubuntu firewall, you can allow access to the specific port with:

  • sudo ufw allow 80

If you are using the DigitalOcean Cloud firewalls, you can follow the steps here on how to configure your rules:

Hope that this helps!

  • Hi @bobbyiliev,

    Thank you so much.

    I did

    sudo ufw allow 80

    it is not open yet.

    What should I do next?


    • Hi there @mjj,

      Do you see that the port is open when checking the status of your firewall? You can do that with the following command:

      • sudo ufw status

      Also if you run netstat does your webserver listen on port 80?

      • sudo netstat -plant

      Feel free to share the output of those two commands here.


thank you so much all, I was wrong on the networking settings.
Now I could fix the issue!
