I’ve been successfully using the Metabase droplet for quite a while. Few days ago, I tried opening the link I normally use and I get an error (tried every browser). The droplet itself is active, I tried rebooting it a few time, but nothing. I was wondering if anyone could help on the necessary steps to troubleshoot the problem. Thanks a lot.

Hello, @caioac87 @dwihdyn789
If you can’t see java running when you use netstat than it means that Metabase is not running on your droplet.
You can confirm this by executing the following command:
If the service is not started you can start/restart it:
Note: This might take up some time to run and actually start the service, if you still can’t access the Metabase in your browser try to manually start it using the commands bellow
The script that start the service is:
You can execute this and wait for couple of minutes to complete.
You also need to start Java by executing the following command:
If this is a new droplet I will recommend you to quickly spin up a new Metabase droplet as this will take less than 10 minutes to have it up and running.
Hope this helps!
You can create a simple bash script to check if the service is running and if not to start it. You can then execute the bash script with a cron job whenever you want (once per minute and etc)
You can check this task for creating cron jobs:
The cron job should look like:
* * * * * /bin/sh /path/to/script/script.sh > /dev/null 2>&1
Hope this helps!
