I set up the wordpress droplet and it works 100% as ip.ip.ip.ip
I’ve changed my nameservers on namecheap to ns1.digitalocean.com (and ns2 & ns3)
I have the following DNS records on DigitalOcean: CNAME www.example.com - is an alias of example.com (43200), NS example.com - directs to ns1.digitalocean.com. (and ns2-3) (1800), — btw does that . at the end belong there? A example.com - directs to ip.ip.ip.ip (3600)
I also changed WordPress Address (URL) & Site Address (URL) to https://www.example.com but now I can’t access my wordpress site on this doman or ip.
Anything else I need to do or add in DNS or something?
