I just joined digitalocean and created a virtual host with wordpress(used the one click install). I followed the tutorial and now when i try to access the site, the domain works but all internal links point to IP.
My DO looks like this:
The test site link is : southparkromania[dot]com
If I need to give any more info, tell me :).

This will be a database issue.

You’ll need to modify the database for your site, and find all columns in wpoptions that are set to ’http://YOURIP’ and change them to ’http://YOUR_DOMAIN

something like this (this is merely an example – DO NOT COPY/PASTE THIS):

UPDATE wp_options SET option_value='' WHERE option_value='';
