I have created my droplet and installed zpanel on my site with success. I manage to setup a couple of sub domains and an FTP account before following instructions from below to secure my server.
I've completed the instructions above, but now receiving and 403 forbidden error on my main TLD & zpanel, which are both pointing to jonathanyap.com & zpanel.jonathanyap.com.
Including www in jonathanyap.com seems to reachable without the error, and the other sub-domain are working as well (finn.jonathanyap.com & jake.jonathanyap.com).
I have no problem connecting to the FTP account I have initially set up via zpanel.
I'm a beginner in all these and hope someone can guide me through.
