Serve can not connect to the internet

But my Google Chrome can’t seem to access the IP address: Oops! Google Chrome could not connect to

Could you help me do a port scan? Do you have any ideas what might be the problem? Thanks!

Port 80 doesn’t seem to be open on your server. This is the port that web pages are usually served on. Before installing Wordpress did you install the Apache webserver? If not, you should follow this tutorial first:

If you’ve already done that, did you set up a firewall? In that case make sure you open up port 80. If you’re using ufw to manage IPtables, run:

<pre> sudo ufw allow 80/tcp </pre>
