ERR_CONNECTION_REFUSED mac apache ubuntu lamp 14.04

Posted November 7, 2017 2.8k views

Hi all,

I’m suddenly not able to access my website. I tried different browsers, private browsers, and browsers on my phone from different locations. I tried rebooting my laptop and modem as well as configuring the proxy.

I can access my website through an FTP, but I can’t reach my website with neither the IP or domain in the address bar.

If you guys could please help me, I’d greatly appreciate it!

This sounds like that your Apache service was not running. What you could do in such cases is to check the status of your Apache:

systemctl status apache2

If Apache is not running you could start it with:

systemctl start apache2

Then check the status again and make sure that it is running.

Hope that this helps!
