Ubuntu Lemp Nginx Server Site Keeps Not Working

I recently finished this tutorial for setting up a lemp nginx wordpress server. I currently have one domain and 4 subdomains hosted, each with their own server blocks. The problem I’m having is that the sites work for like 30 minutes and then stop working for a while, then turn back on. I have no clue what is causing this as the digital ocean graphs don’t show high memory, cpu or bandwidth usage.

What I could suggest is starting by checking your Nginx error log first:

  1. tail -200 /var/log/nginx/error.log

Feel free to share the output here, just make sure to remove any sensitive information.
