Why can I not log into WordPress site on droplet with domain name

September 10, 2015 1.1k views
CMS DNS Applications WordPress DigitalOcean Ubuntu

1.) I have an installed WordPress site on Digital Ocean
2.) I was able to login while the site was an IP address and not my domain name
3.) Now that the website is under my domain name, I cannot login in from the back end.


I go to and it switches back to my IP address and doesn't accept my password I created with Digital Ocean. I can only login once I select "Forgot Password" and go through the song and dance of requesting a new password and then I can login.

But even then I can't see my site when I select "Customize Theme" nor can I preview pages as it reads that I do not have permission.

What's going on here?
