Forbidden You don't have permission to access / on this server in Wordpress Install One-Click

November 18, 2014 1.8k views

i don't know if this guide of Wordpress Install One-Click is updated or not, but after created the droplet with the one-click install wordpress, when i login to it with ssh and get the message:

"To finish installing Wordpress, navigate to your droplet's IP: http://MYIP and use credentials from below."

Every time that i try to access to http://MYIP i get this error message:

"Forbidden You don't have permission to access / on this server."

And if i try to access to the http://MYIP/wp-admin i get this other error:

"Not Found
The requested URL /wp-admin was not found on this server."

So i just don't what to do, this is supposed to be a one click install, but it seems that it isn't =/.

If i found what is wrong i will post it here, but if some people of the STAFF can help me i will appreciate it :)

Ok, so this was the solution, for some reason digitalocean didn't do it well at the first try, so i created a second droplet with wordpress one-click install, keeping the first one with the problem (this is very important to get a new ip), after that i deleted the first one with problem. Then i tried again the step of the ip and i get the prompt window to enter the user and password provided when i enter through ssh to the droplet.

i hope it help!!!
