Hello, I spun up a new Droplet today (Basic/Premium Intel/4GB RAM/80GB SSD) on Ubuntu 20.04.
Despite everything I have tried, the server will not load in my browser via IP or domain name. Domain is forum.wackywriters.com.
The domain is active and ping/nslookup will resolve the IP address, but the site itself will not load. I’m trying to get a fresh instance of Discourse up and running.
I have used nmap -p80,443 188.8.131.52 to lookup the ports on the server, but they’re listed as “limited”. I do not have a firewall/ufw enabled, all ports should be open and listening. Using whatsmydns.net shows the forum.wackywriters.com domain resolving to the correct IP.
Why is this happening? We moved to a different server today and I haven’t been able to get it live once. I can SSH in just fine from my Terminal.
