Hello there,

The message you see is actually the index.html in the /var/www directory . You can log in via ssh and modify it or simply add your domain name to the server and access the site/application using a domain name instead of the droplet/server IP.

You can check the LAMP stack page for more info and the LAMP tutorial we have as well. You can skip the LAMP install steps and go to the step of creating a virtual host:

Hope that this helps! Regards, Alex
