Noob Question: IP doesn't connect anymore

May 25, 2014 666 views
I set up a rails app called discourse on my droplet. The IP for my droplet ( was working for the first 5 or so days, now when I try to access it directly via the IP I get the following message - "Oops! Google Chrome could not connect to" I'm not sure what happened. My droplet still shows as active. The app was working last time I checked. Could it have been hacked? Is there any way to try restarting the droplet?

~: telnet 80

telnet: Unable to connect to remote host: Connection refused

Looks like your webserver crashed. You can try starting it (nginx: sudo service nginx start, apache: sudo service apache2 start) or rebooting your droplet (sudo reboot) which should fix it.
