Created Wordpress application droplet. Can't access wordpress from IP address.

  • Posted September 26, 2014

I created a Ubuntu 14.04 droplet with Wordpress preinstalled. I don’t have it connected to any domain name yet. The one-click tutorial indicates that you can access wp-admin by typing in the IP address, but when I try to access http://IP_address, my browser just says, “403 Forbidden. You don’t have permission to access / on this server.”

When I try http://IP_address/wp-admin/, I get a 404 not found.


Okay, I created a new droplet with a different IP address and that fixed it. Not sure what the problem was, but it’s not my problem now.
