Not showing Apache Landing Page

I have done all these configuration:


And checked with # sudo ufw status and the results are:

Apache ALLOW Anywhere
22/tcp (v6) LIMIT Anywhere (v6)
Apache Full (v6) ALLOW Anywhere (v6)
OpenSSH (v6) ALLOW Anywhere (v6)
Apache (v6) ALLOW Anywhere (v6)

But when I visit your my server’s public IP address( in the web browser, it just won’t show up.

I did check the IP(using this

ip addr show eth0 | grep inet | awk ‘{ print $2; }’ | sed ‘s//.*$//’

It still showing the “Please log into your Droplet with SSH to configure the LAMP installation.” Page.

When I visit your IP address I can see the Hello World! message. Are you still seeing the problem?

Usually, this could happen if the Apache service is not running, you could start it with the following command:

sudo systemctl start apache2

I also could suggest this tutorial here on how to troubleshoot common Apache problems:

Hope that this helps! Regards, Bobby
