My site is getting offline

since yesterday I have noticed this problem on my website.

Every time I try to access my website,, I have to make several attempts until I can access, but soon after the server falls again.

This happens both in the administrative area and also in the posts.

I do not know how to solve it, can anyone help me?

The first thing you'll want to do is to check your log files. For Apache these can be found in /var/log/apache2 If an error is occurring it will be recorded here. Please share what you find so we can assist in troubleshooting the problem.

I already figured out the problem.

My site has some end-of-the-year and christmas articles, and with that I got a lot of hits.

The site crashes because the ssl that is in it that is from letsencrypt has a limit of accesses that if I am not mistaken is 20 per second, I believe that as the visits spent much of this value ssl simply locked and did not open the blog.

In short, I'll have to hire a more powerful ssl.
