I recently moved my server to a new VPS service. I am trying to just set up the new server without even dealing with restoring a backup. My new server is running Ubuntu 18.04. I redirected my domain registration to the new ip address. The admin system status is not giving me any errors BUT my URL is not working. I can only get to my server by using the IP address. I know this may not be a lot to go on but does anyone have any ideas?
If you just did this today it can take up to 48 hours for DNS to change properly.
A couple work arounds:
Change your hosts file (C:\Windows\Drivers\Etc\hosts) (/etc/hosts) and add your server ip and DNS name there.
clear your DNS cache and see if that helps
Wait for DNS to fully propagate.
