500 Server Error on Nodejs and Ubuntu Droplet

Hi, I have this droplet im using Nextjs as my main site with Strapi admin panel. I’m using openLitespeed to host them both on a single droplet.

So I use forklift to upload both files to my droplet, I run npm install on them both, and then I run npm build for them both as well.

My site works great for the a couple weeks, and then all of a sudden the pages where it pulls information from the Strapi site, gives me a 500 Internal server error.

I can’t find any error logs in my droplet, and I can’t see any issues.

Any thoughts? Help would be greatly appreciated!

Please tail the error log like this

tail -f /usr/local/lsws/logs/*

then refresh the page and see if there’s any 500 related error log shows on your console.

You can also check if there’s any error log under your project folder.
