Server Timeouts after reboot
I recently used a one click app droplet to fire up a new wordpress installation for a site that’s being migrated.
I went through the configuring process and set up LetsEncrypt per the auto scripts instructions.
The site isn’t live yet so I had to migrate the DNS (via an a-record change) in Cloudflare to the new server temporarily to get the SSL updates to go through.
Once done I migrated the DNS back to the old server and connected directly to the new site via a host file update.
All looked good (lets encrypt was working as normal). This morning when trying to login the site crashed, so I rebooted the server but now all I receive are timeout notifications via browser.
I still have SSH access and ran the following:
systemctl status sshd

The address of the server is 22.214.171.124, not sure what IP 126.96.36.199 is doing…
Just checking firewall settings also....
To Action From
22/tcp LIMIT Anywhere
443/tcp ALLOW Anywhere
80/tcp ALLOW Anywhere
22/tcp (v6) LIMIT Anywhere (v6)
443/tcp (v6) ALLOW Anywhere (v6)
80/tcp (v6) ALLOW Anywhere (v6)
Any ideas? Any feedback would really be appreciated.
