I have an Ubuntu server (18.04) running a copy of WordPress that I'm trying to access from outside my home network. I have port forwarding set up on the router and can access Apache quite happily. However, putting in the URL //xxx.ddns.net/wordpress results in my browser displaying the internal address of the server and, naturally enough, failing to connect. I'm pretty certain that there's something fairly simple that I'm missing. Allied to this is that I can't SFTP into the server from outside either. the connection is made but always fails with the password. Of course it all works fine on the LAN. Can anyone enlighten me as to what I'm doing wrong?
