Question

IP address of droplet still points to removed virtual host file.

The IP address of my droplet still points to a domain (was a redirection), I already removed (a couple of days ago) that .conf file. I reloaded and restarted the apache2 service, but still my IP points to that certain domain. I looked at the default .conf and other files but I can’t find any answer, why it’s still doing that redirection.

Thanks in advance.

Try checcking if the site is still enabled in the /etc/apache2/sites-enabled directory. You can do that by

ls /etc/apache2/sites-enabled

If the site is still enabled, delete it:

sudo rm /etc/apache2/sites-enabled/site.conf

Then reload Apache:

sudo service apache2 reload

What do you mean? Does your domain redirects to an IP? Did you disable the config file? Please be more specific and post files.
