Ok so I have everything (I thought setup correctly) I have a droplet for my site. I also am using Putty to run everything (like Apache). I am using FileZilla for the obvious reasons. Now my issue is that when I start up the apache server it gives me this “Starting web server: apache2apache2: Could not reliably determine the server’s fully qualified domain name, using 127.0.1.1 for ServerName httpd (pid 20412) already running”
So instead of the server running 126.96.36.199 (my droplets IP) its running 127.0.1.1. This may be a super simple fix and I am just overlooking something. Also if I go to my websites IP I get this “www.188.8.131.52’s server DNS address could not be found.”

VirtualHostblock. Don’t you have a domain?
You web server is doing a failed redirect.
Can you post your VirtualHost configurations? Have a look in the directory:
And make sure that you don’t have any
.htaccessfiles in your web root, which might be doing the bad redirect.
Your webserver works fine, you have some configuration that prefixes www. to the request.
