Wordpress site is redirecting to another wordpress site??

Posted May 12, 2020 952 views

I just set up a new wordpress one click install droplet and when i’m trying to log in into my admin panel, but my site seems to have been automatically hijacked by another site which is exactly the same. When i use my droplets IP and try to access wp admin i get redirected to best fishing florida’s wp admin page.

Is this an issue with the droplet?

Hi there @epsilonprime21,

I’ve just tested this with a fresh new Droplet, this would happen only if you’ve specified the domain name during the initial setup of the Droplet.

What I could suggest is starting with a new droplet and making sure that you specify the correct domain name during the initial setup, you can follow this step by step tutorial on how to do that as well:

Hope that this helps!

  • My domain name is correct, i even managed to set up my site properly and enable https but it kept crashing and now it keeps beeing “taken over” by Best Fishing Florida. My domain literally points to it sometimes and at other times it points to my actual site.

    This seems like an issue with my droplet and someone else using my domain, but how do i stop it?
