Connection refused on one URL only

  • Posted December 4, 2019
  • Nginx

I haven’t made any changes to my code or droplet. Suddenly, I still can access my website on all URLs, except one, which gives a connection refused error. I can’t see anything in the access logs or the error logs.

Any thoughts on how to debug?

Feel free to share the output of the commands here in case that you are unsure how to proceed.

  • Check that your domain name is still active, you could run a DNS check via this tool here:

Make sure that your A record is pointing to your Droplet’s IP address.
