Hi @faizanmalik,

You’ll need to update your Apache service and add an additional configuration file there. This shouldn’t be that troublesome give the fack DigitalOcean have a pretty great tutorial for that.

If you are on an Ubuntu Droplet, you can follow this tutorial to configure an Apache config file for your new domain:

Even if you are using a droplet from MarketPlace, this tutorial will help you in this situation. Take a look at it and see if there is something you need more help with.

Hello, @faizanmalik

You can follow up our existing tutorial on how to install WordPress on Ubuntu 20.04 droplet.

There is no need to install the additional PHP extensions as they’re already installed, same goes for enabling the rewrite module. You can follow the rest of the steps and let me know if everything is working as expected.

Hope that this helps! Regards, Alex
