New droplet "this site can't be reached"
Hi, I purchased a droplet and I have a domain from google (alpizano.me) and I followed these tutorials to set it up:
I followed it to a “T” for the most part, but when I type the IP into my browser or use the domain name, alpizano.me, I get the message on Google chrome:
This site can’t be reached XXX.XX.XX.XXX took too long to respond.
Checking the connection
Checking the proxy and the firewall
Running Windows Network Diagnostics
I SSH’d into root on a Linux VirtualMachine running Ubuntu on my Windows 10 PC, then I followed the guide to create an additional user, “apizano”, and and set that up with admin super privileges. I then, using GitBash on my Windows10 PC created the SSH keys for authentication. I installed apache, then created the directories structure, demo pages, and virtual hosts files (used alpizano.me). I went to google domains and added the 3 DNS name servers. I made user to add the domain on the droplet as “alpizano.me” too, instead of “www.alpizano.me”. I skipped step 6 on the “how to setup apache virtual hosts on ubuntu” because it said Optional.
Is there something I am missing out? I followed all the steps in the guide.
Also, I can’t SSH into my root on my VirtualMachine or even my Windows 10 PC using GitBash anymore. I can only SSH into the new user I created “apizano”. Is this normal? Is logging in/SSH into “apizano” and not “root” via GitBash enough to do everything I want? I followed the guide completely for that.
Thank you in advance.
