dns resolving correctly everywhere except my droplet

Hi,
my domain name resolves correctly everywhere https://www.whatsmydns.net/#A/forms.degabrielle.name

but from the droplet itself it gets the wrong IP.(165.227.237.67)

I’ve set the A record for 188.166.148.63 on both the godaddy and the DigitalOcean dns config
and the added NS records

NS  forms   ns2.digitalocean.com    
NS  forms   ns3.digitalocean.com
NS  forms.degabrielle.name  ns1.digitalocean.com

FWIW I’m setting up a discourse droplet instance.

Hi @spdegabrielle,

Please note DNS changes can take up to 24 hours to fully propagate. I did check your domain and I can confirm it resolves from the proper droplet for me as well.

This leads me to believe your /etc/hosts file might not be correct. SSH to your droplet and type in

nano /etc/hosts

Inside of it what do you see? Do you see your droplet specified there?
