Can't access NZBGet on port 6789

I’ve installed NZBGet on my Ubuntu droplet, but cannot access the web interface. When I run nmap, I get the following:

Nmap scan report for localhost ( Host is up (0.000013s latency). Not shown: 998 closed ports PORT STATE SERVICE 22/tcp open ssh 6789/tcp open ibm-db2-admin

So, the service is definitely running - but I can’t access it, be it via or http://localhost:6789 via SSH tunnel, nor through http://<outside IP>:6789. Please help! This is driving me nuts. Thanks!
