Load Balancer says droplet down but it is up

My load balancer shows the status of one droplet as down and the other is up. However, both droplets can be accessed individually. Can anyone help with this?

  • Yeah experiencing the same issue. Droplets are individually accessible and healthy but show up as down on the load balancer.

  • I am having the same issue. How did you resolve yours?

  • I have the same issue, suddenly load balancer shows my droplet is down, but when I checked manually to my droplet, it is fine, the web server is up.... after some moment the load balancer said droplet is healty again, back to online, i don’t know why this is happening

I am experiencing the exact same issue. I can access any droplet on the load balancer directly and it resolves fine, but the Load Balancer itself says that the droplet is down.

I know that the status is determined from health checks, but the health check settings are pointed directly at port 80 on those droplets - so I’m just not really sure what else to do.
