ghost not working after a snapshot

Posted February 3, 2014 3.9k views
After a command line shutdown and a snapshot of the droplet, ghost status is running, I'm not able to see the website. Restoring from the snapshot didn't help either.

Have you tried restarting Ghost?
sudo service ghost restart
If that doesn't fix it, what's the output of
sudo netstat -plutn
and what error do you get when you try to access Ghost?

there's basicaly no response from the web server whatsoever.

I'm deeply mad because after tying again to make a backup of my droplet I crashed again my blog. Mad!
and my attempt to restart nginx failed -
root@milkoghost:~# sudo service nginx restart
Restarting nginx: nginx: [emerg] unknown directive "georgievs.net" in /etc/nginx/conf.d/default.conf:3
the content of my /etc/nginx/conf.d/default.conf are here: http://pastebin.com/4EHKzCne
    georgievs.net ;
That line is invalid -- replace it with the following and then restart nginx:
server_name    georgievs.net ;
Kamal, I resolved the problem. the conf file was with a wrong syntaxis of the default.conf file
