I stumbled over this problem on a fresh Digital Ocean droplet: no links are working, including /dashboard. See: http://188.8.131.52/
The requested URL /blog/bravo-post was not found on this server.
Apache/2.4.29 (Ubuntu) Server at 184.108.40.206 Port 80
I suspect .htaccess is involved but cannot figure out how.
norbert Hi, I think that your hosting service ignores the included .htaccess file. In such a case it is the easiest to remove that file. The links will work then, but you won’t be able to have pretty URLs.
If you want to have pretty URLs, you will have to enable the usage of .htaccess files in your DigitalOcean droplet, since it is disabled in the default LAMP stack there.
mad Yup, mod_rewrite is not enabled by default... ?
norbert You’re welcome! Hope it works now.
