Hi @Abdo

First things first: Do NOT create multiple threads about the same issue. It will just make it much more difficult to answer.

Thank you brother.

service php7.0-fpm-sp restart

this problem appears to be from an Ubuntu security update that caused DNS resolution to begin failing for some running services, including PHP-FPM. This was the security update:
