HALP! I'm trying to set up my first portfolio site and I seem to be running into way too many problems.
A couple of hours ago, I set up my DNS to point my new domain (godaddy) towards my new server (digitalocean). Apparently, godaddy takes about 24 hours? either way, I didn't get the standard apache, 'it works!' page when I tried to visit my domain in the browser.
On the digitalocean faq page, it says that if you would like to visit your site before the records have been updated, you can access it by typing your server's IP address in the browser. But when I type in my IP address on the browser, it says 'can't establish a connection to the server at 1x2.xxx.xxx.xxx. What am I doing wrong here?
