After playing with load balancers: default-backend 404

I tried playing with load balancers yesterday. After I deleted the load balancer, I’m getting certificate errors (invalid Fake Ingress Certificate, although mine is from Godaddy) and I’m only getting the text default backend - 404 without being able to access my site.

Is there anything I can do to fix this?

Accepted Answer

When I created the Load Balancer, it added an entry in my domain and redirect all traffic to the LB’s IP. After deleting the entry and setting the correct value it worked.

I don’t get why it didn’t delete the entry in my domain, though
