Yesterday and today, my site’s traffic dropped by almost 100%.
I checked and the site is still indexed on Google and it still ranks for its main keywords. So that’s not the issue.
Then I noticed my site has been loading very slow. So I checked the error log and I see a lot of errors in the apache error log.
AH01276: Cannot serve directory /srv/users/serverpilot/apps/sitename/public/wp-content/uploads/2021/05/: No matching DirectoryIndex (index.html,index.htm,index.php) found, and server-generated directory index forbidden by Options directive

I haven’t changed anything in the past few days. Didn’t mess with any settings or anything like that.
I did update a few plugins including: Breeze cache plugin EWWW Image Optimizer Really Simple SSL
It’s a WordPress site on Ubuntu 16.04.1 x64. I am using ServerPilot to manage the server.
I was hoping someone could help me and point me towards the right direction. Thank you very much in advance.
