Wordpress says it is installed, but still showing default page at IP address
I am trying to set up my first droplet (a one click Wordpress install).
I have set up the address, and am then able to log in via the Terminal on my Mac. I get a message telling me that Wordpress has been successfully installed and should be able to be viewed from the IP address.
It then asks me to reset the root password.
When I do this, it kicks me out.
I then tried to access the wordpress site using the IP address but it still says “Please log into your droplet via SSH to enable your WordPress installation.”
So I tried logging back into it via the Terminal, and the exact same thing happens - I get a successful message, kicked out after entering a password (Connection to XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX closed) but no wordpress install.
What am I doing wrong?
