I have been struggling for the past 2 days to fix this problem. I have read countless forum answers (DO and others) and I can’t figure it out.
TLDR: I can’t use my domain name (stairway.ma) in my DigitalOcean Wordpress droplet.
DigitalOcean droplet: Ubuntu WordPress 5.8 on Ubuntu 20.04 (IP: 188.8.131.52)
DigitalOcean DNS records.
When works both URLs point to 184.108.40.206, it works.
when I change the URL to https://stairway.ma, nothing works, the whole website is down.
I’ve probably created and destroyed a dozen droplets since yesterday:
define('WP_SITEURL', 'http://stairway.ma'); define('WP_HOME', 'http://stairway.ma');
but it doesn’t work.
Any ideas? I would appreciate any help and thank you in advance for your time.
