Ubuntu + Wordpress not accessible anymore
After creating a droplet (with the included one-click installation for wordpress) it’s impossible for me to access Wordpress again.
It all started with installing a Wordpress theme from Themeforest that got denied by Wordpress auto theme installer, so I had to upload the files manually by (s)FTP in the provided Wordpress dir.
I had to fix SSH (login with SSH keys).
After login I did “ls” => WORDPRESS and checked the cd /var/www => this dir only contains a wp-config.php file
but when I try to access Wordpress on site I get the following error
The requested URL /wp-admin/ was not found on this server.
and when visiting the website without /wp-admin/ I get
You don’t have permission to access / on this server.
I really have no clue what went wrong, anyone could help me out to get wordpress up & running again? ( @sierracircle )
