Trying to install Plesk to my droplet
So, I bought a domain through Go Daddy but WordPress is really slow through Go Daddy so I’m trying to use my Digital Ocean droplet as it’s much faster. I set up WordPress already but I don’t have a control panel like I do through Go Daddy so I’m trying to set that up right now. I ran the following commands:
wget http://autoinstall.plesk.com/plesk-installer chmod +x plesk-installer ./plesk-installer
However, when I get to the step where I install the packages, I get the error: ERROR while trying to check the hostname.
I tried adding
123.456.78.90 example.com to my hosts file and saving it but I’m still getting that error. Hopefully what I wrote makes sense. I’m very new to hosting so apologies if anything I wrote sounds off.
Edit: Do I need a CNAME? Also, for my IP, am I using my Go Daddy IP or my Digital Ocean IP? I’m assuming it’s my Digital Ocean droplet IP.
