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

Regards, Bobby

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?!

Thx, zeke
