Question

Web server stops working on restore?

I had a droplet running django and apache+mod_wsgi for a web server. I recently wanted to switch to the S.F. data center so I created a snapshot of my droplet and then destroyed my Ny1 droplet. After i restored my droplet, I visited the I.P. address of my server and I get “It works!” default apache webpage. Everything is still intact and I reloaded apache multiple time but I still no luck. Any help is appreciated.

Run the following command as root: <br> <br>“grep -r -i ‘old IP’ /etc/apache2/sites-enabled” <br> <br>Edit all the files that were listed in grep’s output and make sure your IP address is correct.

What’s the contents of <b>/etc/apache2/sites-enabled</b>? You should also update your DNS records w/the new IP address, if you haven’t done so already.

Yes it has a new IP address and my files are on the droplet, but for some reason django does not show up.
