Grav CMS - page not found

I’m brand new to digitalocean and server setup/configuration in general. Last night, I was trying to follow this tutorial to set up Grav inside a droplet. Things were going fine more or less until I tried to access the domain described in the tutorial. At that point the page failed to load (after spinning for a long time).

I am reasonably sure I set up my grav user and installation correctly, because I can switch between root and grav and because the bin/grav commands work. However I can’t seem to find where the errors are. What would cause this kind of error? I’d be happy to share some code or error logs/messages if I knew what to look for. Thanks in advance for the help!

You can run tail -20 /var/log/nginx/error.log to pull the last 20 errors logged by NGINX. If you’ll post that output to a code block, I’ll be more than happy to take a look at it for you.

Also, can you check to see if you’re able to access the site using just the Droplet IP?
