Apache Ubuntu 16.04

Freshly installed apache2 on ubuntu.
the default apache page showed.
i made 1 minor config change (in dir.conf) and installed php mysql
then i kept getting this error: "This site can’t be reached"

No DNS involved, just on the IP address.

Traceroute reaches 178.62.221.23
Portscan tells that port 80 on 178.62.221.23 is open
I can telnet into port 80 on 178.62.221.23
Apache error log gives no errors
Apache access.log show nothing special
Apache2 is running
Apache configuration files gives no errors
sudo chown -R www-data:www-data /var/www/html // give www-data access to webroot

The only change i made was to dir.conf to put index.php first

I have spent a few hours troubleshooting this to no avail.
Then i removed PHP, MySQL and Apache and re-installed Apache, still i get:
This site can’t be reached
78.62.221.23 took too long to respond.

Should i just delete my droplet and start a new one?
