I’m having too many issues setting this up, i’m not sure what recent changes were done to how setting up a wordpress server is but they’ve made it an extreme hassle. I’m about ready to just delete my account and find another server hosting provider.
before I just created the droplet, ssh’d in to install the wordpress and necessary modules and thats it. everything else was mainly done from wp-admin, and I could get there easily. Now I keep getting errors.
The domain keeps going from working perfectly, to going down & me getting an “ERR_EMPTY_RESPONSE” error as well as a ‘Database could not be established’ error when it finally goes back up and I try to visit the site via ip address.
When the site is finally actually working, I try to log into WP admin & the correct password I set does not work. So I try to hit reset. 7 resets and 4 hours later I still have not recieved a new password or password reset link. Can someone please help me figure out whats going on before I just give up on DO? I already have beef due to some other corny shit they did and this isnt helping
