This site can't be reached

Apache PHP LAMP Stack WordPress Ubuntu 18.04 MySQL

I’ve setup a droplet for Wordpress on LAMP and everything was working fine earlier. Now when I try to access the site via my domain or the IP I get “This site can’t be reached”

I’ve checked the status of APACHE and it is running.
I’ve checked the status for MYSQL and it is running.
I’ve check to make sure traffic was allowed on port 80 and it is enabled.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

To add to this I am able to SFTP using the IP with no problems.

I’ve had something similar happen. Suddenly the site just stopped responding but can access via SFTP/SSH. Did you get anywhere resolving this?

  • I’m having the same issue. Did you get anything?

    • Yes, I resolved this. In my case Fail2Ban was blocking my IP.

      I temporarily disabled Fail2Ban to verify this and then whitelisted the office IP.

      When routing through Cloudflare there at various IP ranges that also need whitelisting.
