I am trying to build a Wordpress site and have set up my server with a LAMP stack. But when I go to my IP address, I get this message: Please log into your droplet via SSH to configure your LAMP installation.

I have a virtual host conf file set up. I ran the a2ensite command and restarted. Not sure what the issue is.

If you already logged in to SSH, it’s enabled. Just go to /var/www/html and remove index.html.
Now you are ready to put your files there. :)
