MPORTANT: After connecting to the Droplet for the first time, immediately add the WordPress administrator at http://144.126.220.164.

I am connected via ssh, is there a way I can restart the wp installation manually from here?

@KFSys, Yes I did SSH and console but no success. Is there a way I can run the wp installation process from here?

Yes I did create a WordPress droplet from the market place and added a domain. I can see a web page generic page when I use the domain or the IP in both cases I see the same page (like a test page) but I dont see WP setup page as it is suppose to happen after the console setup.

Hi @fiazshah,

Did you use the WordPress droplet from MarketPlace? IF so, make sure you’ve pointed your domain to your Droplet otherwise it won’t work.

If you haven’t used the MarketPlace Droplet, can you confirm what WebService you are using, is it either Nginx or Apache? We’ll need to see the configuration file for your domain in order to see what’s going on exactly.

Looking forward to your reply.

Regards, KFSys

Hello, @fiazshah

Could you please let me know if you’ve also followed our tutorial on how to install WordPress on a Ubuntu 20.04 droplet

You can use Nginx as well if you prefer it over Apache. The article for Nginx is this one:

Are you using a domain name to access the WordPress site or you’re using the droplet’s IP address?
