Apache Listening to Port 8080 - connection refused

I fired up a droplet with LAMP on 16.04 I edited /etc/apache2/ports.conf and set it to Listen 8080 I edited /etc/apache2/sites-enabled/000-default.conf and set it to <VirtualHost *:8080> I ran sudo ufw allow 8080 I restarted apache service

My website doesn’t load - what am I missing?


This sudo ufw allow 8080 fixed me, Thank you

there’s nothing in there - Apache is not even getting hit


Please post the output of this command:

tail -20 /var/log/apache2/error.log

That pulls the last 20 lines from the error.log and will display them. Simply copy and paste to a code block.
