Question

Cannot connect to DigitalOcean Droplet through IP on web browser.

I have Apache2 running and I am trying to connect through port 899

I have adjusted the port to listen to pot 899 through httpd.conf

Any computer I try to access it from I get the same message

It worked when I first set it up. now however It doesn’t work anymore (not sure reason) I have tried to make changes, but they didn’t work

I get the following error message: (I’ve edited & x’d out the ip myself below)

This site can’t be reached

192.xxx.xxx.xx refused to connect. Search Google for 192 xxx xxx 899 ERR_CONNECTION_REFUSED

Yes, Initally when I made the change I restarted apache

  1. no firewall is enabled on droplet nor have I touched it since I setup (the site was working, don’t think it’s firewall)

  2. I’ve tried it at 3 different environments my work, school, home and the last time it was working was in school. I’ve tried it at work and at home and it doesn’t work.

  3. I will get back to you with this soon
