I had my application that was working fine with ipv4 . We needed ipv6 and i enabled it following the tutorial here https://www.digitalocean.com/docs/networking/ipv6/how-to/enable/#on-existing-droplets. The problem is, it took my site offline and occasionally returning bad gateway now. I am getting frustrated really and any help will be appreciated.

I changed my ifcfg-eth0 file as recommended to


BOOTPROTO=none
DEFROUTE=yes
DEVICE=eth0
GATEWAY=my_gateway
HWADDR=address
IPADDR=address
IPADDR1=1addres1
MTU=1500
NETMASK=mask_value
NETMASK1=mask_value
ONBOOT=yes
TYPE=Ethernet
USERCTL=no
IPV6INIT=yes
IPV6ADDR=myIpv6Adrress_value/64
IPV6_DEFAULTGW=ipv6_gateway_value
IPV6_AUTOCONF=no

and in my nginx.conf

listen 80;
listen [::]:80 ipv6only=on;

Right now , my site here https://nametalkam.com cannot be reached. Please what am i doing wrong?

Hi there @jeeka321,

I just came across this question and I can see that your website is working as expected, would you mind sharing with the community how did you get that fixed?

One thing that comes to my mind is that you had to add an AAAA record to your DNS for the new IPv6 for your domain name.

Regards,
Bobby
