Hi there @juventinechiang,

I just created a new Droplet and I was able to verify my IP address in Google Webmaster tools.

What I could suggest here is checking your Apache or Nginx access and error logs to see if there are any errors there.

For example if you are using Nginx you could check your logs with the following commands:

  • SSH to your Droplet and run:
tail -n10 -f /var/log/nginx/access.log
  • Leave the command running and go to your Webmaster Tools and try to verify the IP again

  • Go back to your terminal and check the output

You can do the same for the /var/log/nginx/error.log as well.

A couple of possible issues could be:

  • You are trying to verify https://your_ip_address but you only have Nginx listening on port 80 so you can only verify http://your_ip_address

  • Your firewall is blocking the requests from Google, make sure that your port 80 is open

  • Try to access the google.html file and make sure that it is accessible

Hope that this helps!
