Question

Completing wordpress one-click install

I’m following the steps in the Digital Ocean Wordpress one-click install at https://www.digitalocean.com/docs/one-clicks/wordpress/ and am not able to complete my install by visiting my site’s IP address in my browser.

I have successfully connected to my Droplet as root through by using the ssh command in my terminal: When I logged in through Terminal I received a “Welcome to Ubunto…” message so all seems fine there. But when I point my browser (Chrome, version 69.0.3497.100) to my IP address, Chrome gives me a “This site can’t be reached” error.

How do I solve this so that I can use the web interface to complete the Wordpress install?

Hello, @celsius100

If the droplet was deployed minutes ago the issue might be related with the DNS propagation as well. Keep in mind that DNS changes might take up to 48 hours due to DNS cache from all ISPs and etc. You can always lower the TTL for the A record, but generally speaking the process will need some time. However it usually happens a lot faster.

You can follow/check the DNS propagation using a site like https://www.whatsmydns.net

You can also check the tutorial on how to do it manually with Apache on 18.04:

And Nginx:

Hope this helps.
