Hi Dan,

By default when you run the "paster serve" command that will run on port
8080.  You can try going to http://your-droplet:8080/ and hopefully that
will work.

You can also edit the Allura/development.ini file and change "port =
8080" to "port = 80" and run the paster serve command.  Port 80 is the
default so you can just go to your droplet site directly then.

There are many other ways to run a python app, instead of the "paster
serve" command which is designed mostly for development.  If you run
Allura long-term you will want to set it up with a more robust system.
See for some
guides (don't need to worry about all those details like database and
some config options, they key part of the guide is the webserver and
WSGI sections).
