Migration problem Site can't be reached after migrating to new server and apache reinstall

June 13, 2019 161 views

I migrated a site to a new Digitalocean account. It is a Wordpress site. Completed the following:

1) Took snapshot in old account
2) transferred snapshot
3) Assigned same region as old account was on
4) Created new droplet from snapshot
5) After SSL was found to be broken completed much research and removed and reinstalled apache2 used:
sudo apt-get –purge remove apache2
sudo apt-get autoremove
sudo apt-get install apache2
sudo /etc/init.d/apache2 restart
6) Ensured steps were followed from https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-set-up-apache-virtual-hosts-on-ubuntu-16-04
7) Reinstalled certbot using https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-secure-apache-with-let-s-encrypt-on-ubuntu-16-04

The certificate is now returning in Terminal as successful but the site says can’t be reached.

No errors in the apache log.

Any help is appreciated.

Solution was to remove apache2 and install nginx. This worked just fine.
