My website is down even though my droplet says "active"
So although in the control panel my droplet is listed as “active”, my website is still down.
I tried running some tests in the command module. When I try to use “curl -l” or “telnet” to see if my server is running, I get the error “connection refused”. After this, I tried to reboot my server. This solved the problem yesterday and I was able to connect to curl -l and telnet, however, upon trying it again today, I am once again getting the response “connection refused” even after the reboot. I am not running nginx or apache2. We use Mongodb and Ubuntu. Memory is not an issue as we are only using about 10% of our available memory. Does anyone else know why my server could be down or how to fix it?
