What I could suggest is checking if your domain name is pointing to your Droplet’s IP address via this DNS lookup tool here:
If you’ve just made the DNS change, note that it might take up to a few hours for the DNS cache to clear over the Globe before you could see the new changes.
Also, you could follow the steps from this video on how to host multiple WordPress websites on the same server with Apache Virtual Hosts:
Essentially, what needs to happen is:
- Download a new copy of WordPress with the
- After that extract the files
- Then move the files to the
mv wordpress /var/www/your_site.com
- Then set the owner of the file to the Apache2 user:
chown -R www-data:www-data /var/www/your_site.com
- After that copy the existing Apache config:
sudo cp /etc/apache2/sites-available/000-default.conf /etc/apache2/sites-available/your_site.conf
- Then enable the new site:
sudo apachectl -t
- If you get
Syntax OK reload Apache:
sudo systemctl reload apache2
- Then create a new MySQL database and username. To create the database first access MySQL:
Then run the following queries:
CREATE DATABASE wp_site;
CREATE USER 'wp_site'@'%' IDENTIFIED BY 'use_secure_password_here';
GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON wp_site.* TO 'wp_site'@'%' WITH GREANT OPTION;
- Finally, access the site via your web browser to finish the installation.
Hope that this helps.
