Ubuntu 1404 Easy Engine "manual" WP install - IP address shows the web, domain name shows Welcome to nginx
I just installed my test WP with Easy Engine using this tutorial. All went well, the WP site is working and I’ve already installed some plugins and edited CSS after entering sudo chown command in Putty.
The problem now is the domain. I’ve registered my domain on Namecheap and I’ve pointed that domain to the 3 nameservers of Digital Ocean.
In the DO DNS dashboard, I’ve added the domain.
A - @ - IPADDRESS
When I enter the IP address in the browser, it shows the website as it should. When I enter the .com address, I end up on Welcome to nginx! If you see this page, the nginx web server is successfully installed and working. Further configuration is required.
Zone file shows this;
$ORIGIN address.com. $TTL 1800 address.com. IN SOA ns1.digitalocean.com. hostmaster.address.com. 1422881267 10800 3600 604800 1800 address.com. 1800 IN NS ns1.digitalocean.com. address.com. 1800 IN NS ns2.digitalocean.com. address.com. 1800 IN NS ns3.digitalocean.com. address.com. 1800 IN A 188.8.131.52
Can anyone shine a light on this? I won’t dare to add Amazon CloudFlare or even change the Wordpress’ URL before I get this working properly.
