DigitalOcean is not redirecting website address to the droplet
After finishing setting up the droplet and website code, I tried to access the website, but all browsers returned 404. I double checked everything to see possible mistakes I made, but everything looks ok.
Entering the droplet IP on the browser returns the nginx default page, meaning that the droplet itself is fine.
Then I concluded that the problem resides in the address redirection process, I’ve deleted the A and AAAA configs and created them again. Still nothing.
DigitalOcean apparently can’t redirect the url request to my droplet.
From what I’ve seen from other questions, some people are having problems related aswell.
