Question

Finishing Wordpress setup through interface on website

So I followed all the steps on this website: https://marketplace.digitalocean.com/apps/wordpress#getting-started

However, once installation finished on the console, I visited my site but it still has the default blank page that comes when you first buy the domain from namecheap. There is no wordpress interface for me to use to further customize the site and change settings. Any help please?

Hi @wonjin,

It seems to me like you haven’t changed your DNS to point to your new Droplet with DigitalOcean. If you are unsure how to point your DNS to your Droplet or change your Nameservers to DigitalOcean, I’ll recommend checking the following tutorial:

https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-point-to-digitalocean-nameservers-from-common-domain-registrars

There is even a section about Namecheap and how to point a domain from there.

Additionally, here are the docs related to Managing DNS with DigitalOcean:
