I followed the DNS (https://www.digitalocean.com/docs/networking/dns/quickstart/) and Apache Virtual Hosts (https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-set-up-apache-virtual-hosts-on-ubuntu-18-04) tutorials and thought / hoped I had set everything up correctly. This is my first time doing these webadmin tasks without a user-friendly webapp/portal tool.
I was hosting two sites on Dreamhost and decided to migrate to DO for both the cost savings and to gain the experience of actually doing the manual setup. I was able to migrate and launch my first site (and email) just fine. It was a simple static website. The second was a bit more complex, it was a single WordPress site. I did the website last week. I just did the WP blog yesterday.
I believe / hope my issue is just that the DNS hasn’t moved from DH to DO. When I dig the site from my laptop I don’t get any results but when I dig from my DO server I get the expected ip.
Any recommendations? Do you think I screwed up the DNS config on my DO droplet? Or possibly screwed up the virtual host config for the blog? Maybe screwed up the WP install?
