'Unreachable' error when trying to Fetch as Google

I just moved my site to DigitalOcean from a shared server. The site is working fine, but Google is having a hard time crawling it. I tried to do Fetch as Google but on every page, I get an ‘Unreachable’ error. Do I need to do something to the server to help google see my page?

My site is a Laravel based site, using a LAMP server on Ubuntu 14.04.

As it shows in the access log, Google gets a 500 Internal Server Error as a response. Check your error logs.

Solved. Had a look at my Laravel logs and found a php error. Fixed that and its working smoothly now.
Thanks for your input, Woet!
