Why does my Ghost one-click installation still ask me to complete the quickstart yet I've completed the tutorial?

As title says, did the steps all in order, running ghost ls on the server shows it’s running under my domain name too. Navigating to the droplet IP shows the quickstart box but navigating to my URL shows nothing.

Only thing I did differently was I forgot to set the A record up before SSHing into the server.

Apologies for not getting back sooner, yes I managed to solve the issue.

The issue was with the DNS propagation. I deleted the entire droplet and started from scratch but allowed the DNS to fully propagate before finishing the Ghost setup. This fixed the issue and my site is now up and running :)


I was just wondering if you’ve managed to get this working? Did it have something to do with the DNS propagation?
