I need some help regarding wordpress and digital ocean.
I created a droplet, installed wordpress on it, successfully set up my own username, password, site name etc.
Then I was trying to link my ip address to the domain I own.
I went into bluehost (where I purchased my domain) I linked all 3 name servers I have on digital oceans to the domain.
Then I went into wordpress settings, changed wordpress address and site address to the domain I own.
So, now whenever I keyin the ip address, my site jump to mydomain.com (the address of my own domain)
BUT, it gives me this error:
mydomain.com’s server IP address could not be found.
Is it because it takes some time to let it work? Or I just messed up.
It looks like you are working on Step 5 of this setup:
Make sure to read the How To Set Up a Host Name with DigitalOcean link.
You can set up a Wordpress site and host it on Bluehost. I did this before. It might be easier to do this since you purchased your domain name from Bluehost.
yes, that’s where I entered in my custom domain in both URL settings.
then now I cannot log into the site,
bluehost is a lot more expensive than digital ocean. I think one is 5 bucks, the other is like 11 or something.
tried it, decided to host it on digitalocean instead.
I see, yeah Bluehost is kinda expensive. I would contact Digital Ocean support.
I forgot to set A record and CNAME record in my digital ocean settings page…
Apparently once you set up both, the site works fine now.
Support is for quality members on DO who buy much.
Like some users not got answer to ticket about 2 weeks.
