Open /etc/apache2/apache2.conf in nano as root:

sudo nano /etc/apache2/apache2.conf

Find the line that says Servername your droplet's IP address (you can search by pressing Ctrl-W, typing your IP address, and pressing Enter) and make sure the line below it looks like this:


Then, restart Apache:

sudo service apache2 restart

If that doesn’t fix it, can you post the actual domain name?
