"Server not found" only when using wordpress after changing hosting of the domain
I’ve just recently set up an account at digitalocean and I love it so far! I moved my websites to the server and everything works great when i access them with the ip and using aliases in 000-default, but yesterday I changed the domain name servers to digitalocean and created a domain here and my website is no longer working.
I know it takes between 24 and 72 hours to propagate all the DNS servers, but what is really weird is that if I just create a plain
index.php file with just
<?php echo "Hi"; ?>
it works. As soon as I switch back to my wordpress
index.php and it gives me server not found. I tested it even through google pagespeed insights tool, and it is the same. When i use the simple “Hi” file it loads, when I use the wp file google gives me a DNS error.
Any help is much appreciated. Any suggestions?
