Hello there,

In addition to what has already been mentioned. You can also share more information about the droplet. Is this a one-click WordPress installation or you’ve manually configured WordPress on a LAMP/LEMP stack droplet?

Hello,

Once you create the 1-Click WordPress installation, you need to SSH to the Droplet and complete the installation steps.

For more information on how to do that you can follow this step-by-step tutorial here:

Let me know how it goes!

Best,

Hi @FloatingGrayJellyfish,

Have you checked you web server logs?

You can figure out How To Install WordPress on Ubuntu 20.04 with a LAMP Stack to check if your configuration is correct.

I look forward to your feedback, I’d be happy to help you :)

Hope that helps you,
