I have a wordpress/nginx site on a droplet that I didn’t set up with automated backups. I needed to have automated backups, so I shutdown the droplet, and took a snapshot. I then created a new droplet from that snapshot.
The droplet the snapshot came from has a functioning wordpress site on it. I visited the IP of the new droplet, and all I see is the ‘Welcome to ngingx!’ page.
I looked around on the server, checked the directories, and all the configuration files (that I can remember creating or changing) are there, and correct. I checked that nginx, wordpress, and php were installed. I restarted nginx, wordpress, and php. Still, the default nginx page persists.
I am stumped.
