Opening of port 80 and 443


Hi everyone,

I'm a new Oracle Cloud user.

I've attempted to provision a VPS using Ubuntu Minimal and Oracle Linux.
Software is installed normally, SSH works without issues.
I am however not able to access the instance via HTTP or HTTPS.

I've attempted to open port 80, 8080 and 443, with no success.
I've spent the better part of this weekend scouring Google to find a solution, I'm just not able to get it working.
The IP is pointing correctly to my domain and has propagated.. 
A security list is active, I've done what is logically needed, but I might be missing a crucial step somewhere.

Howdy, Stranger!
