My wordpress install is showing my IP address in the browser address bar instead of my domain name. My domain name ( paulapplegate.com ) is hosted at Google and an A record points to my droplet’s IP address (18.104.22.168) but in the address bar the URL looks like this http://22.214.171.124/wp-login.php?loggedout=true, instead of http://paulapplegate.com/wp-login.php?loggedout=true as you would expect.
What do I need to change to get what I expect, http://paulapplegate.com/wp-login.php ? Do I need to change /etc/hosts ? As an FYI I can’t access my WP install Settings-> General Page. I get the following error. “Safari can’t open the page"126.96.36.199/wp-admin/options-general.php” because the server unexpectedly dropped the connection. " I will try to replace the file with one from the install.
I am lost and know just enough to be dangerous to myself. Thanks for any help you can provide. Paul
