I cannot set up my WordPress site desipite having followed a DO tutorial

I followed this tutorial:

After logging in to SSH and setting up my WordPress site and SSL I got the following message: Completing the configuration of WordPress.Success: WordPress installed successfully. Installing WP fail2ban – Advanced Security Plugin ( Downloading installation package from… Unpacking the package… Installing the plugin… Plugin installed successfully. Success: Installed 1 of 1 plugins. Plugin ‘wp-fail2ban’ activated. Success: Activated 1 of 1 plugins. Installation complete. Access your new WordPress site in a browser to continue.

But when I navigate to the site url in a browser I see a Digital Ocean splash page. How do I access my site?

Hi there,

Thank you for reporting this problem! This should now be working as normal.

As a side note, before doing the initial setup, make sure to point your domain name to the server IP address:
