I have created a FreeBSD droplet bearing IP address; and the droplet instance is refusing to serve webpages. What might be wrong, and how could I remedy the issue?

What webserver did you installed? I need more information!!

You probably got the port 80 blocked, check your firewall:

  • iptables -L

or if you got ufw

  • ufw status

If you want us to help you more you need to give more information:

  • Wich one-click install did you use?
  • Do you have any error logs in nginx/apache2?
  • What kind of application are you running? Have you got the server prerequisites for this app?

A pkg info dump would be nice to see what you got installed, afaik there’s no pre-made images for freebsd with a webserver installed.

What is the content of your /etc/rc.conf?
