Site can't be reached

Ubuntu Apache PHP WordPress

Hi guys, need some help.

Out of nowhere, my website ( stopped working. I’ve checked my DNS configs and even tried other browsers in despair.
I can ping the domain, tried to access over the IP ( but no luck, It says always “Site can’t be reached”.

Went to see the Apache 2.4 log and I have this error:

AH00169: caught SIGTERM, shutting down
AH00163: Apache/2.4.29 (Ubuntu) configured – resuming normal operations

Is it because of this? I’ve search on Google, here in the forums, but I can’t put it back online.
Can anyone help me?

This was a pre-built droplet from DO with WordPress. (PHP7, Apache 2.4)

Thanks in advance!

Well just found something very weird (too me at least).

Tried to visit the website with my phone and it worked! but it doesn’t work with my home network…
