I had this working fine before, but then I tried to get HTTPS working. I obtained a valid certificate, but It wouldn’t load, so I removed the HTTPS settings in the Nginx file to try and just get the site to load again. My website is and I am receiving a ERR_NAME_NOT_RESOLVED when I attempt to visit the site. The Nginx file reboots with an OK

DNS settings on DO:

A Copy	directs to Copy	
3600 Copy
A Copy	directs to Copy	
3600 Copy	

Here is the Nginx file that loads fine.

server {
        listen 80 default_server;
        listen [::]:80 default_server;

        root /srv/www/;
        index index.html index.htm;

        # Make site accessible from http://localhost/ 

        location / {
                # First attempt to serve request as file, then
                # as directory, then fall back to displaying a 404.
                try_files $uri $uri/ =404;
                # Uncomment to enable naxsi on this location
