Hi there @tcp,

Would you mind sharing a link to the tutorial that you’ve followed? I could then try to advise you further on what you could try to fix the problem.

If your site is not reachable this is most likely due to a couple of things:

  • Either the port that you are trying to access is closed by your firewall

  • Or your webserver like Apache or Nginx is not running

A "LAMP" stack is a group of open source software that is typically installed together to enable a server to host dynamic websites and web apps. This stack typically consists of the Linux operating system, the Apache web server, a MySQL database, and PHP, a dynamic content processor. This tutorial serves as a guide for installing these components on an Ubuntu 18.04 server.

Hey Bobby,

thank you for your answers. I was so early in the making so I deleted the droplet and started over, now its working :)

But I’m still having problems with the denied public key… also that post was flagged as spam?!
