Hi there @ronaldodb198 ,

Are you still able to SSH into the system? If so, please use the commands stated above from @bobbyiliev. If not, then check if you can access the console from the DO panel.

It looks like there is something wrong, probably just a configuration error. Do you get to see anything on screen of your website? Please paste some more information.

If you can’t get it working, you can always contact me.


it is weird i can acces my ftp on filezilla but my website is offline maybe someone can enter my acount and have a look what is wrong with it


It would really depend on the services that you are using on your server. Let’s say if you are running Nginx, you would need to make sure that Nginx is up and running:

systemctl status nginx

If it is not running you would have to start it:

sytemctl start nginx

Then also make sure that it is enabled so that in case your droplet gets rebooted again it would start automatically:

systemctl enable nginx

If you are running your site in a container, make sure that the container is up and running:

docker ps -a

If the container is not running make sure to start it and also check your logs for any errors.

If you provide me with more information about your setup I could try and give you more specific suggestions.

Regards, Bobby
