My IP is 188.8.131.52. However, I followed some advice on the DO forums, regarding my situation, to change Wordpress General settings so that Wordpress is accessible through my website name instead of my IP. Now I cannot even access my Wordpress dashboard. I setup my ‘A’ records and my 'CNAME’ records following the tutorial. I’m not sure what else I have to do. Do I have to wait more than 24 hours? Someone please help me.
