DigitalOcean Droplets are managed using a terminal and SSH. SSH is an encrypted network protocol for remote server login and command execution. It is the standard method used for accessing and interacting with Linux servers. This tutorial shows how to connect to a DigitalOcean Droplet for the first time by using the OpenSSH client.

Yes, the problem was I had to manually setup the domain config on nginx.

@ralphbolo what did you have to put in your domain config file for this to work? I am having the exact same issue and can't figure out what I am doing wrong in my config file. Thanks

  • i had to update the server_name variable and then ssh into it. Not sure which one actually fixed it. Try both.

    server_name mydomain.com

I tried that. I just ended up deleting my droplet, creating an Ubuntu one and manually installing Ghost. A few more steps, but it worked the first time through and is quite honestly, easier that using the DO one click app. I tried that multiple times and always had configuration issues with Nginx.
