I can successfully run a local WordPress site in a vagrant box on my laptop.
Local Vagrantfile entries:
config.vm.hostname = “wordpress” config.vm.network “private_network”, ip: “10.23.45.60”
From a browser, I can access the WordPress site at http://10.23.45.60
But, once I try doing the same thing on my DigitalOcean droplet, does not work. Droplet Vagrantfile entries:
config.vm.hostname = “wordpress” config.vm.network “private_network”, ip: “10.23.45.60” config.vm.network :forwarded_port, host: 8086, guest: 80
From a browser, I cannot access the WordPress site at http://xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx:8086 (xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx 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:
Like I mentioned above, the WordPress site that is running on my local vagrant box is accessible to me at http://10.23.45.60. 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.
