Why won't my one-click Wordpress site load?
Hi, I’ve successfully created a One-Click Wordpress Droplet, logged in via SSH, and completed the configuration. I’ve also created / edited DNS records on Digital Ocean and my domain name registrar, and am routing traffic through Cloudflare, as opposed to using Certbot.
I’m directed to visit the new site’s IP address to complete setup, but when I try this in a web browser using the IP or URL, the site just hangs and never loads anything.
In addition, when I check the Apache configuration using
apachectl configtest I initially get the message
Could not reliably determine the server's fully qualified domain name, using 127.0.1.1. Set the 'ServerName' directive globally to suppress this message
I fixed this by adding
ServerName domain.com to the top of the apache2.conf file, but this doesn’t seem to change anything.
