Hi. I’m trying to make a one-click install wordpress in my droplet (Active 512MB Ram 20GB SSD Disk new york WordPress on Ubuntu 14.04) and following this tutorial:

I folow everything right: ssh to my droplet > get the .htaccess password > create my wordpress user and password > finish my wordpress installation > set my registar (gandi) to foward my domain to my droplet IP

And then, when I Update my Wordpress Address (URL) and Site Address (URL) to my domain/hostname (“” in my case), the system goes back to http://(droplet-IP)/wp-login.php screen to login again. but then I just cant login anymore, my user dont work and recovering my password by email dont work either. What am I doing wrong? Thanks!
