I use One-Click Install WordPress on Ubuntu to create a droplet. When i go to my ip address to set up Wordpress, I saw this message" log into your droplet via SSH to enable your WordPress installation". How can I enable the installation?

As the message says, you need to log into your droplet via ssh.

The wordpress install is not activated until you do so in order to prevent someone else from hijacking the setup process by going to your IP and setting up WordPress before you get a chance to. This way you can launch a droplet without this risk as the setup process is not shown in the browser until you first log in via ssh to activate it.
