My website is not loading. Connection not found for both domain name and IP address

Nginx DigitalOcean

I reset my root password from my control panel in Digital Ocean and it restarted the server. After I reset the password and chose new password from logging into the console, my site is down. It is no longer working if I visit my domain name and my IP address.

I’m hosting my site on DO but letting Forge ( manage my site. I can access my database, access SSH and access file system just fine from terminal and Sequel Pro.

Please help.

My first suggestion would be just to restart the nginx service with:

sudo service nginx restart

Since you are managing the server through forge I would hesitate to suggest other changes but when using a standard Ubuntu version of nginx it should start by default on boot. If this were disabled it could then be re-enabled with:

systemctl enable nginx.service
