Question

Default DigitalOcean page after One-Click quickstart

I just setup a wordpress droplet on DigitalOcean and went through the steps that one-click told me to go through. After completing this guide everything was a success and it said to visit the site to finish setting up. Once visiting the site I am still greeted with the default DigitalOcean landing page telling me to complete the one-click quickstart guide.

Hi there,

Once you’ve created the 1-Click installation WordPress Droplet, keep in mind that you need to SSH to the Droplet and complete the installation by following the steps in your terminal.

For a step by step instructions on how to do this, you can check out this tutorial here:

Hope that this helps!

Best,

Bobby

Hi @NathanLay,

Have you pointed your Domain to the DigitalOcean’s Droplet you’ve bought? Additionally, if you load the Droplet’s IP address in your browser do you see a version of the WordPress website?

I believe the issue is with your Domain not pointing to the Droplet. Please do check it and let me know if it does.
