My wordpress website is not working

I created my wordpress website with droplet using wordpress in marketplace. I’m trying to do it for the 4th time but again it’s not working. My domain is not working, secure site (letsencrypt) is not working, and something is wrong with the website overall

What’s the problem? Can someone help me?

Hello, @qbasty

Can you please confirm if you’re still experiencing issues? As far as I can see the site is loading okay at the moment.

Keep in mind that all DNS changes might take up to 48 hours in order to fully update. This is due to ISP DNS cache and general DNS propagating as well. This usually happens a lot faster but will still take at least few hours to fully update.

You can monitor the DNS propagation with any website like https://www.whatsmydns.net/ just select the desired record type A or MX and then click the Search button. It will show you a DNS record check from various points around the world. This will help you to see if there is a DNS misconfiguration or if it’s just the DNS slowly updating.

Hope this helps!

  • Hey! My site is now working and currently, the only issue is the certificate (letsencrypt) that I installed while I was installing WordPress in the console. It’s not working and I’m not sure why. I’ll try to resolve the problem.

    • Hello, @qbasty

      Have you tried to run the certbot’s dry run option?

      certbot renew --dry-run
      

      If you’re having issues with the SSL Certificate you try to install a new one for the domain name in questions as well.

      Let me know how it goes!
