Load Balancer Droplet status allways down


I’m tryin to use a Load balancer from DigitalOcean on Frankfurt DC. My Droplet status is allways down… I can connect to the Droplet via ports 22/80 and 443. I don’t understand why the Load balancer doesn’t update the status to Up.

LoadBalancer listens to the droplets on the VCP. If you use nginx, add “listen IP:PORT” so that the HTTP server works on that private IP and port.

Works for me.

Same problem, I am spending too much time trying to make it work. My Load balancer is always down and my site not working anymore.

I’m also tryed to change the check from HTTP to TCP but it still doesn’t work…

Any advice about this issue?
