How to access WordPress site running in Vagrant box on DigitalOcean droplet?

Posted February 20, 2021 44 views

I can successfully run a local WordPress site in a vagrant box on my laptop.

Local Vagrantfile entries:

config.vm.hostname = “wordpress” “private_network”, ip: “”

From a browser, I can access the WordPress site at

But, once I try doing the same thing on my DigitalOcean droplet, does not work.
Droplet Vagrantfile entries:

config.vm.hostname = “wordpress” “privatenetwork”, ip: “” :forwarded
port, host: 8086, guest: 80

From a browser, I cannot access the WordPress site at
( is my droplet’s public IP)
And, please note, I have a number of other sites running from different Vagrant boxes on my DigitalOcean droplet, just not WordPress sites.

This is my configuration for WordPress (setting database & user):

/usr/local/bin/wp core config –dbname=wordpress –dbuser=wordpress –dbpass=wordpress123

This is what I used to install WordPress:

/usr/local/bin/wp core install –url= \
–title=“Blog” –adminuser=“admin” –adminpassword=“admin” \

Like I mentioned above, the WordPress site that is running on my local vagrant box is accessible to me at But, the WordPress site running on my droplet’s vagrant box is not accessible using my droplet’s public IP and forwarded port. I don’t know what I’m missing.

Any help would be appreciated.
