I tried adding the ip adress as covered here, but I can't seem to access it over http, or ping it (ssh login works fine). How do I connect to my droplet. Sorry I'm a newb at this

I have the same problem now. I can access the droplet through SSH and apache2 is running as well, but have no access through http. Any suggestion from the support team?
