I can't seem to access my droplet from it's IP address

  • Posted June 9, 2014

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?

I have a similar problem. I created a droplet and I can’t access it via VNC Console. The screenshot of the problem is posted here. : http://imgur.com/7nxWMgf Does anyone know why it is happening. The support team doesn’t seem to help much

I had a similar problem and it was caused by firewalld which was enabled and started by default in Fedora. It was allowing SSH but blocking everything else.

What have you installed on the droplet? Is there a webserver running? Did you set up a firewall? Without more information, it is hard to give you a detailed answer. To get started with a basic webserver setup on Fedora, this article should point you in the right direction: <br> <br>https://www.digitalocean.com/community/articles/how-to-install-lamp-linux-apache-mysql-php-on-fedora
