Apache2 always times out after reboot
I’ve just upgraded to Ubuntu 18.04. Reboot often takes 10 minutes or more. During this, apache2 often times out and I had to change restart from “on-abort” to “always” in order not to loose the server whenever the system reboots.
I can immediately ping the system and get to the login via ssh, but it takes multiple minutes until the password is accepted. There are no error messages when booting from the digitalocean console, none in journalctl, and no problems reported in systemd-analyze. Using “systemd-analyze blame” I can see that it sometimes takes multiple minutes until the multi-user runlevel is started.
What could be potential culprits for such behavior? Thanks!
