error loading wordpress
I just installed wordpress on my LEMP server. When I attempted to access it to set it up via Firefox browser it came back with the the following popup:
You have chosen to open:
which is: application/octet-stream (420 bytes)
Before installing wordpress I set up a test site with all of the components of the LEMP server. I had configured my firewall for https and had acquired my SSL certificates. This site worked perfectly.
Given that my test site worked properly, the problem has to be in the wordpress installation. To install wordpress, I followed the instructions in the tutorial “How to Install WordPress with LEMP on Ubuntu 18.04” to the letter.
Does anyone have an idea what went wrong and how to fix it?
