I believe that you’ve initially set up the WordPress installation for the server IP address rather than your domain name.

You need to change your WordPress site and home URLs by editing your wp-config.php file and adding the following lines:

define( 'WP_HOME', '' );
define( 'WP_SITEURL', '' );



Disable your plugins or check your .htaccess file.

To Disable your plugins Go main directory -> wp-content -> Rename plugins as plugins_disable.
