Hi @michaelwade,

How are you trying to install Discourse? Have you pointed your Domain to your Droplet, do you have a WebSerivce like Nginx or Apache, and have you configured your domain there?

Can you please provide us with the article you are following to install Discourse or the steps you’ve taken?
