Question

Spinning up new WordPress application errors

I’ve just tried creating a new WordPress droplet (Ubuntu 12.10) but am having some issues. I tried rebuilding, but have had no luck.

When I load up, by DNS or by IP, I just get an Apache directly listing with wp-config.php. When I open that I get some output that publicly shows my database password, etc.

The instructions imply it should be ready out of the box: https://www.digitalocean.com/community/articles/one-click-install-wordpress-on-ubuntu-12-10-with-digitalocean

I’m fine building it on a fresh Ubuntu image, but I’m just trying to figure out why the prebuilt one isn’t working?

Has anyone else found this to be an issue?

I created a whole new droplet and it’s working on this one. No luck with rebuilds on the old droplet. Not sure if Digital Ocean wants to look closer at it, but I guess that’s one fix!
