Ip Address refused to connect ERR_CONNECTION_REFUSED

Hi everyone, been trying to figure out the cause for this. I installed wordpress using one click a week ago. Then using jetpack, i migrated my old website to this new wordpress droplet.

However after the transfer, the ip address which was working now now shows Ip Address refused to connect ERR_CONNECTION_REFUSED.

I don’t believe even if a map my domain to new droplet it’ll work since the content can’t be displayed via my ip address.

Anyone who thinks of solution, i have disabled ufw to use one for digitalocean but even when i enabled it and allowed various ports, nothing worked.

Hi there,

It sounds like that your Apache service might not be running. You could check that with the following command:

  1. systemctl status apache2

If it is not running you could start it with the following command:

  1. systemctl status apache2

If it is failing to start, I could suggest following the steps here on how to troubleshoot common Apache problems:

Feel free to share the errors here as well.
