"Unauthorized

This server could not verify that you are authorized to access the document requested. Either you supplied the wrong credentials (e.g., bad password), or your browser doesn't understand how to supply the credentials required."

Check out this article for all the details on the WordPress image:

Long story short, when you log onto the server it will display the credentials that you need to proceed with configuring your WordPress site in the "message of the day":

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
These instructions are stored in /root/WORDPRESS for your review.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
To finish installing Wordpress, navigate to your droplet's IP: http://109.131.43.208 and use credentials from below.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Your /wp-admin is protected by Apache using .htaccess credentials:
User: admin
Pass: oVGkL98pFq
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Make sure to specify hostname from DO panel to your droplet before creating it (for example: 'blog.mydomain.com' or 'myblog.com')
This will create necessary Apache configs based on hostname and Apache will respond based on hostname.
Server will also respond to its IP address, so if you finish installation from http://IP then
you will need to change hostname from Wordpress Settings later (from http://IP to http://hostname)

If you need to upload files, use WinSCP or Rsync to copy files into /var/www
