All my sites in my droplet suddenly stopped working. It brings the error page “this site cannot be reached”.

Firewall is disabled, I have also restarted apache2 it still didn’t work.
How do I solve this problem?

Thanks, I uninstalled Nginx(it was listening to port 80) and restarted apache2, that fixed it. I still don’t know how Nginx got installed

  • Thank you for this, miketayo1!

    Not sure if it’s related- but we had the same issue around the same time you posted this, where our site suddenly started using nginx instead of apache2 after years of running on apache2.
