Hi there @PavelN,

It sounds like a problem with the Droplet itself, I think that your web server like Apache or Nginx might not have started after the reboot.

What happens when you visit your Droplet’s IP address directly?

On another note, I could suggest logging into your Droplet via SSH and checking the status of your webserver.

If you are running Apache, you could take a look at this answer here on how to troubleshoot common Apache problems:


And if you are using Nginx, you could take a look at this one here:


I hope that this helps!

Hello, thanks for respond.

1) What happens when I visit my Droplet’s IP address directly - ERROR:

This site can’t be reached xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx took too long to respond.


Checking the connection
Checking the proxy and the firewall

2) Im running Apache and I look to your link and did all the actions but didnt solve the problem - I have an ERROR (in console):

“Apache could not reliably determine domain name”

Restoring Droplets from my images didn`t solve the problem.

Important - that before Resizing my Droplet everything was Ok.

Can you suggest something else to solve this problem?
