Incorrect file structure or DNS records issue?
This is my first time using DO and pretty much my first time of setting up my own website - so apologies if this is a daft question....
I have created my DO droplet with Ubuntu 16.04 and installed LAMP and then Wordpress. I also attached my domain name to my droplet. My problem is that rather than Wordpress showing up under mydomain.com or www.mydomain.com it’s only showing up under mydomain.com/wordpress (Yes indeed, I did create the db name as wordpress). I get the Apache ‘It Works’ page when I type either the IP address or www.mydomain.com.
Can anyone tell me where I’ve gone wrong and importantly, how to put it right so that the wordpress install showing under my domain name rather than the /wordpress sub folder?
If it helps, the domain is declinedinsuranceclaims.com
Many thanks in advance
