I’m to the point where I’m setting up DNS for the domain I want to point to it, which is the part I actually hate most because I hate setting up DNS so much.
In a super ironic twist, Digital Ocean’s domain control panel is way more accessible than Namecheap’s control panel so once the DNS finishes propagating so the domaon can be properly delegated I’ll be managing things from there.
The server’s timing out if I try to access it from the browser but fine for SSH and SFTP, so I’m going to wait for all the DNS stuff to get ironed out before I start digging into why this is happening. I’m hoping it’s because of a DNS screw-up. It’s easy for those to happen when using Namecheap’s DNS manager. I found it easier to update DNS via the app.
First app I’m testing is Compass. Hoping I get it all working this weekend.
