Can't load website after changing wordpress site URL

LEMP WordPress Ubuntu

Hi, I currently have an issue where if after navigating to my wp-admin page via my IP address after install I change my Site URL to from my IP address to my domain name, the page times out and i’m then unable to access my site via IP address or domain name.

The only way to get back into my wordpress page is to revert to a snapshot, but every time i change the site URL it times out. Once it times out i get ERRCONNECTIONREFUSED when trying to get to the domain name.

I’m running the Ubuntu 14.04 LEMP stack with wordpress installed.

Issue fixed.

Rather than deleting it i thought i’d leave it here and post my simple solution in case anyone else has the same issue!

My A record in my digitalocean DNS settings was set to my old droplet address.. oops!


I’m having an issue as well. I changed the ip address to my domain and I get this error.

This site can’t be reached’s server DNS address could not be found.

Any ideas what might be the problem? I have another Wordpress site on DigitalOcean and the name servers setup is the same so I’m not sure why it’s not loading.

Thanks in advance for your help!
