after following your page here on "how to install word press on my newly created LAMP server nothing changed, my default "apache" home page is still the index.html.
do you have any advice?

  • Try to delete the index.html then, also check if .php is set up to run as index too.

    httpd.conf or dir.conf :

    DirectoryIndex index.php index.html index.cgi index.htm

On your droplet, delete /var/www/html/index.html

Your new wordpress install should already be up and running at but apache uses index.html as the default index file so apache will display that if present by default.
