WordPress install reverts to old IP on load

Hello all,

I have a droplet that I created with the One-Click App for WordPress. Everything was working fine initially and then I created a snapshot of the droplet and destroyed it.

I now created a new droplet from the snapshot but the new IP is reverting back to the old “original” IP address when the site tries to load and thus showing “The site can’t be reached” error on the browser. There is obviously something that I need to edit in order to adopt the new IP that is assigned to the droplet.

Any help is much appreciated it!

Bom, desculpe, mas é que não sei muito inglês, então eu faço traduzir pelo Google Chrome.

Acho que sei qual o seu problema, o problemas pode estar acontecendo pois você pode ter esquecido de remover o domínio da conta antiga e fazer o direcionamento DNS para o novo ip dentro do próprio portal da Digital Ocean e não somente na sua hospedagem principal que está hospedado o seu domínio. Verifica se pode ser isso…

I should also mentioned that I used “Create Droplet” from the snapshot instead of “Restore Droplet” Which option should I use in this case?
