Setting up website at IP address, ready to set it up on domain, unsure how.
The subject is basically where I am. I know every time I log into the console, it prompts me to set up a domain, but it also moves the site into html.old. Have I messed myself up by working on it while it was only available via IP address? I ask that because a while back I toyed around with an old website and had it set up at the domain from the get-go.
If not, what do I do first, let the console walk me through setting it up on the domain? Editing the domain settings in Wordpress itself? Or something else? I’ve already updated the domain name servers with my domain provider. I also want to ensure it is HTTPS configured, but I think I get the process for that.
Running on the “Ubuntu WordPress on 18.04” preconfigured droplet.
