Hello! I'm trying to spin up just a basic test setup on google cloud compute. I've gotten through it all and worked misc errors out, but when I traverse via IP outside the network I'm met with a default ubuntu apache2 page. Did I miss a step? Thanks!

Hi there,

Do you have separate Apache Virtual Hosts for your domain and the server IP?

If this is the case, I could suggest removing the default Apache Vrutal host so that it does not load when you visit your IP.

Let me know how it goes.

Best,

Bobby

Hey! So after trying a bunch of stuff, turns out I needed to turn on mod-rewrite or whatever that is. (I'm super new to hosting stuff, this seemed like an easy starter project). After that I was able to do stuff properly! (It was doing a weird thing where if I prefaced my pages with index.php/whatever then it'd work)

Hi there,

Happy to hear that you've got all sorted out at the end! Server configuration can be tough!
