WordPress "This Site Can't Be Reached" Error
I’m brand new to DigitalOcean, and I’m currently trying to start my first WordPress site. I’ve followed the instructions from several DO tutorials on getting everything set up and have gotten to the point of setting things up through the WordPress dashboard. After I changed my WP/Site urls, I get the error message “This site can’t be reached” and that the IP address can’t be found; the error code is DNSPROBEFINISHED_NXDOMAIN. Unfortunately, I now can’t access WP through EITHER my domain or my IP address…
I’m not the most technologically-savvy individual, but I followed all the directions to the letter and I don’t understand what could be causing this issue. I see that this is a problem for a number of people in this community, but I’ve yet to find a solution/answer that makes any sense to me. Please help!!!
