Cannot invoke WP at Digital Ocean

My domain is:

I ran this command:

It produced this output: Your connection is not secure (Firefox)

My web server is (include version): WordPress 5.03

The operating system my web server runs on is (include version): Ubuntu 18.04

My hosting provider, if applicable, is: Digital Ocean

I can login to a root shell on my machine (yes or no, or I don’t know): yes

I’m using a control panel to manage my site (no, or provide the name and version of the control panel): Digital Ocean’s proprietary dashboard

The let’s encrypt certificate seems fine as verified at

A possible hint that can explain why am I having this problem is the browser’s response to entering the url - the url gets rewritten to

What did I do wrong?

You need to tell WordPress that your Site URL is .


Thank you @_az - that was the problem (I discovered this a little while ago). More precisely, WP installation on Digital Ocean asks for the domain name, on the first time through - and I supplied that string. There seem to be a bug in that installation shell script, resulting with the siteurl variable got set to the IP number instead.
