Problem after adding to region

I have had issues with how slow my site has been working so I decided to move it to another region. I added my droplet to Frankfurt, and now my original site does not work, I just get the Welcome to ngix! screen up.

Any solution I do results in the default my apache screen coming up, and it won’t even let me restart apache at all. Even if something changes it then defaults back to the ngix screen.

Digital Ocean themselves have offered me no support on this even though it was their fault, but I was wandering if anyone has any ideas???


So is your original webserver Apache or Nginx? Also, what procedure did you use to move to another region, and were there any errors that show up in the logs? These things would help in determining how you shot yourself in the foot.

I didn’t even get as far as moving it, so no I did not shoot myself in the foot.

I added the droplet to the Frankfurt region, and after that my site stopped working and I just started to get the Welcome to nginx! screen.
