Wordpress not loading after install

Hello,

What I could suggest is opening your browser’s web console and checking the errors there. It seems like that the static resources are not loaded. This is most likely caused by incorrect sites and the home URLs. Did you specify the correct domain name during the initial setup or are you using the server IP instead?

You can check out this answer here on how to change the WordPress site and home URLs in case that they are not correct:
