Hello, @zuberanish

What is the exact error when you open the website? You can double-check if the webserver (Apache/Nginx) is running. You can also use the netstat command to check if any service is listening on port 80 and 443 as well.

  • netstat -tulpn | grep :80


netstat -tulpn | grep :443

I will also recommend you examine the Apache/Nginx error logs. If there is a problem with the webserver the error will be logged and you can then can easily resolve any issues.

And to check the Nginx error_log you can use the cat or less commands:

  • sudo cat /var/log/nginx/error.log
  • sudo less /var/log/nginx/error.log

Hope that this helps!
