Why did my WordPress site stop working after setup?
I created a droplet this morning to host a WordPress blog and followed these instructions to get it up and running on Ubuntu 20.04:
I was able to access the web interface through my custom domain and go through the basic setup, but after installing a theme and trying to create a post, it stopped working and navigating to my domain throws me and error and tells me I was redirected too many times.
My droplet is still up and running and accessible, and I can access the bare bones of my site (without the WP theme) by navigating to https://<dropletpublixIPaddress>.
Does anyone have any idea why my domain would just stopped working out of nowhere? It is hosted in Cloudflare and no changes were made after I got it initially working.
