500 Server Error on Nodejs and Ubuntu Droplet

Posted July 20, 2020 2.2k views

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!

  • Did you ever figure this out? Have a very similar makeup to the website I’m creating, and having the same exact problem. The pool of possible implementable solutions is waning, so I am requiring some assistance from the community at this point. Thanks in advance!

  • Still having issues with this. Can anyone help me? I have tried so many things, but to no avail.

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.
